Whitmer back in the spotlight tonight

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer will be delivering the Democratic response to President Trump’s State of the Union speech from East Lansing High School. Whitmer’s daughters attend the school. In a statement, the Governor says she’s honored to discuss the Democratic Party’s vision of action for the nation. She adds Americans are good, hardworking people who expect elected officials in the highest offices of government to work just as hard as they do every day. Whitmer also says Democrats across the country have a plan to improve education, fix the infrastructure, expand and protect health care coverage, and build an economy that works for everyone. Governor Whitmer is expected to address the nation at approximately 10pm, immediately following President Trump’s state of the union at 9pm.
