Michigan’s next governor, Gretchen Whitmer, is slated be part of a group of governors-elect meeting on Thursday with President Trump at the White House, the Detroit Free Press reports.
A Whitmer spokesperson told the Free Press that the Democrat wants to talk about “federal trade policies, access to affordable health care, protecting our Great Lakes resources and moving forward on critical infrastructure improvements.”
Andrew Roth, a State News reporter, noted on Twitter that Whitmer wasn’t impressed during the 2018 campaign by her GOP opponent, Attorney General Bill Schuette, bragging about his access to the White House.
“Saying that you’re going to walk through the front door of the Trump White House doesn’t fix a single pothole in this state,” she said. https://t.co/ERStle5XPF
