Detroit Regional Chamber Endorses Gretchen Whitmer Over Bill Schuette for Governor

LANSING — Today Democratic gubernatorial nominee Gretchen Whitmer issued the following statement on her endorsement by the Detroit Regional Chamber. The Chamber previously endorsed Whitmer in the Democratic primary.

“I’m so proud to have this endorsement because we need a governor who can bring both parties together to solve problems and get things done for the people of Michigan. I’ve got real plans to help our businesses grow and attract talent to Michigan by fixing our roads and infrastructure, making health care more affordable, and ensuring every Michigander has a path to a high wage skill. As governor, I’m ready to partner with the Detroit Chamber and everyone else who wants to make Michigan the place people move to for opportunity again. Let’s get to work.”

Last month the Whitmer campaign announced a group of ‘Republicans and Independents for Whitmer,’ which included the former Chair of the Michigan Republican Party, Mel Larsen, former U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz (R-Battle Creek), and a number of former Snyder, Engler and Milliken cabinet officials.
