Gretchen Whitmer, Candidate for Governor from Michigan. She was formerly a member of the Michigan Senate and Michigan House of Representatives.
On what inspired her to run for office:
“That we deserve better. Really, it’s that basic. I love the state of Michigan, I love the people of Michigan and I’m tired of watching politicians politicize problems instead of solving them, and I think we deserve better...I think it was the Flint water crisis, where you see so many people paying a price for poor government, poor leadership, and I think that was maybe the final straw.”
