While thousands across Michigan are still struggling to receive benefits from the state or to hold onto their businesses, Governor Whitmer is cashing in on the COVID crisis by releasing a new line of political gear.
This morning in an email to supporters, Gretchen Whitmer shamelessly asked people to donate to her re-election campaign, which is more than two years away, even though Michiganders continue to struggle from the health and economic effects of COVID-19. Throughout the pandemic, Whitmer used her platform to raise her political profile, becoming a fixture on cable TV, late night talk shows, and in fashion magazines.
“Yet again, Governor Whitmer is putting her political career ahead of the best interests of the people of Michigan. And this time, she’s stuffing her campaign coffers while Michiganders suffer,” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. “The people of Michigan deserve solutions to this crisis, not campaign t-shirts and silly slogans.”
