Gov. Rick Snyder said he won't be endorsing any of the candidates for Michigan governor.

He told FOX 47 Friday he plans to be a sounding board and answer questions for his successor but he doesn't want to overstay his welcome.

"That's not a great role for old governors. I'm always happy to be helpful in some ways, if they want advice, if I can be of use and assistance in terms of talking about what these programs were designed to do and how they can be helpful, I'm always gonna try to be helpful, a helpful resource, not someone meddling in the middle of things," Snyder said.

The governor's immediate plans after leaving office entail going on vacation.

He again refused to go into detail about why he's not publicly supporting Republican nominee Bill Schuette.
