Yesterday, Governor Whitmer joined ABC’s ‘The View’ and CNN’s ‘The Situation Room’ with Wolf Blitzer for yet another two national auditions to become Joe Biden’s running mate. While the Michigan Legislature was in session to work toward reopening Michigan, the governor made it clear that her sights were set on vice presidential politics.
Whitmer maintained that her decisions on reopening the state were guided by “data” and “science” from medical professionals and epidemiologists. However, the governor has yet to put forward a detailed planned on how, which and when certain sectors of Michigan’s economy would reopen at all.
“I don’t think anyone is surprised that yet again, Governor Whitmer is focused on trying to get the attention of Joe Biden, instead of rolling up her sleeves and getting to work with our legislature to reopen Michigan.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. “The truth of the matter is that this is both a health and economic crisis, and that addressing BOTH truly cannot wait any longer.”
