Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said "there's not a better governor" in the U.S. than Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer at a campaign event in Michigan on Saturday.
"There's not a better governor in the United States of American than Gretchen Whitmer," Biden said, to which the crowd applauded. "That's a fact. I've met virtually all of them."
🔦 Whitmer recently scored a failing grade on the CATO institute's newest report on the nation's governors' fiscal policies.
On September 23, a group called Stand Up Michigan collected 500,000 signatures from valid residents for a petition to remove Whitmer's emergency powers.
On October 4, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said she would no longer enforce Whitmer's executive orders "in light of the Supreme Court's decision," which struck down Whitmer's extended lockdown order.
