Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been held up as someone on the shortlist to serve as former Vice President Joe Biden’s running mate in the 2020 general election. That’s usually something that happens when a politician’s star is on the ascendency. Yep, the Democrats expect big things from Whitmer.
Right now, though, she probably needs to focus on holding onto her job.
Organizers of an online petition want to see Governor Whitmer recalled, WWJ Newsradio 950’s Rob St. Mary reports.
The change.org petition claims Governor Whitmer has failed and goes so far as to say she has caused more Michiganders to get sick by “further promoting the pandemic” while her closing of businesses has been haphazard during the outbreak.
It also goes on to say she hasn’t fixed the roads, tackled P-FAS and is cutting the Pure Michigan tourism campaign. Over 120,0000 people have signed the online petition.
The rhetoric is similar to that of a Facebook group called Michiganders Against Excessive Quarantine, which garnered 258,000 members in just a few days.
