Whitmer’s National Audition Continues

LANSING, Mich., March 23, 2020 – On Sunday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer continued her circuit on national television, and continued to criticize the federal government instead of focusing on her home state during one of the worst health crises in Michigan’s history.

Over the last few weeks, speculation has grown that Governor Whitmer is on Joe Biden’s short list for the vice presidential spot on his ticket. Whitmer, who currently serves as a Biden Campaign National Co-Chair, has undermined President Trump almost every day over the last week on national television.

“At a time when Michigan needs Gretchen Whitmer to lead, she is spending too much of her time seeking the national spotlight.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “As governor, Gretchen Whitmer needs to realize that her responsibilities are to the people of Michigan, not as a spokesperson for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.”
