Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has recently expressed and confirmed she's been talking with Joe Biden to join by his side for the 2020 ticket. She wants to be on his team and it has been said his running mate.
However now she's taking a step back saying she wasn't fully vetted and is unsure just yet.
'I've had a conversation with some folks. It was just an opening conversation and it's not something that I would call a professional formalized vetting.' She stated to 'Today' show's Craig Melvin.'
According to The Daily Mail:
She's attracted controversy and the attention of President Donald Trump for pushing some of the strictest stay-at-home orders in the country, as Michigan was one of the hardest hit states, outside the epicenter in New York, by the coronavirus pandemic.
The 48-year-old first-term governor, who previously served in the Michigan state House and Senate, and was a county prosecutor, comes from one of the three states Trump was able to win over Hillary Clinton in 2016, which put him in the White House.
If Biden wants to win the White House, one route he could take is to win Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania back.
But one concern about putting Whitmer on the ticket is that she might have limited time to campaign as the nation's governors have played key leadership roles in getting the U.S. through the pandemic.
'I am making a little bit of time to stay connected to the campaign, but the most important thing that I have to do right now is be the governor of my home state,' Whitmer said. 'That's all that matters to me in this moment.'
You can tell he definitely likes her. Creepy Biden.
Biden, the Democrats' presumptive nominee, was proud to say that he was going to pick a female running mate in March on the debate stage. And of course, Whitmer has been a hot topic with how she's been handling the state of Michigan during the coronavirus pandemic.
It wouldn't in the least surprise me. It would be a good way for him to win over Michigan during the election for his chance of being the President. In particular, I think President Trump needs to stay in the White House cause he's been doing a fantastic job getting our economy back. With that said, we so desperately need Trump to stay in office to get the economy back to the way it was before this pandemic started.
