That Woman From Michigan
Our favorite quote from this Bloomberg article:
(Whitmer) outperformed the U.S. when T____ was in the White House and continues to do so 15 months after voters rejected his bid for a second term.
Democrats. Our way is better.
Be a voter in 2022 and keep the Republican wrecking crew out of the Governor’s mansion. We need “that woman from Michigan” to keep doing what she’s doing.
