LANSING, Mich., December 15, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox, regarding the reports that former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm will be tapped by Joe Biden to serve as Energy Secretary in a potential Biden Administration.
“Jennifer Granholm’s tenure as Governor of Michigan was a disaster for the people of our state, and I have no doubt that her lack of executive ability would make her a terrible Energy Secretary. The fact that Joe Biden would pick for his potential cabinet, an individual who was responsible for Michigan’s lost decade, which saw jobs and a generation of young Michiganders exit our state, is an insult. When Jennifer Granholm was Governor, people joked that the last one out of Michigan should turn out the lights. Now, Joe Biden wants to give the worst Governor in Michigan’s history the power to leave our nation in the dark.”
