The Governor of Michigan ain’t on your side…
Bernie Sanders is in that state trying stop Joe Biden’s lead in the Democratic Presidential nomination race…..
Oh, and the RCP average has Biden up +6 in Michigan….
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer backed former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House bid Thursday, endorsing less than a week before the state’s Democratic presidential primary.
“I’ve been watching this campaign play out, and there’s been sources of inspiration in a variety of candidates. But as we go into Michigan’s election on Tuesday, I am going to be voting for Joe Biden,” Whitmer told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
Whitmer, a Democrat elected in 2018, said her reasoning behind supporting Biden was partly grounded in her experiences nearly two decades ago “taking care of my mom at the end of her battle with brain cancer and rearing my new child and fighting an insurance company that was wrongfully denying her chemotherapy.”
Whitmer said Biden’s son former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden died in 2015 from “the same brain tumor that took my mom’s life,” and she praised the former vice president’s efforts in the Obama administration to widen access to health care through the passage of the Affordable Care Act, which allowed her to expand Medicaid coverage in Michigan.
Whitmer also sought to tie Joe Biden to former President Barack Obama’s bailout of major U.S. car manufacturers in 2009 during the Great Recession, remarking that the federal intervention “was a great thing for our economy as a nation, but it was personal to us here in Michigan.”….
