President Joe Biden has nominated Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for vice chair of the Democrat National Committee. In 2020, Whitmer served as co-chair for the Biden-Harris campaign and was named to the Presidential Inaugural Committee.

Prior to Biden choosing Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate, Gov. Whitmer was up for consideration. In an Associated Press report, it was Whitmer who suggested to Biden that he choose a Black woman as VP.
“Whitmer sent word to Biden’s team that while she was flattered, she no longer wanted to be considered for the running mate slot, according to a high-ranking Democrat familiar with the process,” read the AP report. “She recommended Biden pick a Black woman.”
Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced Friday she would be easing restaurant restrictions, just two days after Joe Biden was sworn in as president.
After returning from the festivities in Washington, DC, Whitmer said restaurants could reopen to in-person dining on February 1, the Detroit News reported.
“The pause has worked,” Whitmer claimed of the original “three week pause” announced 13 weeks ago in November.
“The efforts we have made together to protect our families, frontline workers and hospitals have dramatically reduced cases and we have saved lives. Now, we are confident that starting Feb. 1, restaurants can resume indoor dining with safety measures in place.”
Whitmer will allow restaurants to operate at 25 percent capacity and stadiums can seat up to 500 people, according to Fox 2.
“Tables must be six feet apart with no more than six people per table,” the news station said. Restaurants and bars will be ordered to close at 10:00 p.m.

Democrat Governors playing with your lives for political gain
The latest order, which will last through February 21, okays “the sale and consumption of concessions at restaurants, casinos, movie theaters, and stadiums. It also maintains non-residential gatherings of up to 10 people from two households.”
Just two days ago, Whitmer left the state to celebrate Joe Biden’s inauguration with others from across the country. During the holidays, Whitmer had discouraged Michiganders from traveling or spending time with family over fears the coronavirus may spread.
Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association President Justin Winslow said in a statement that the new order was overdue news:
“It is now time for this administration to move aggressively towards a more comprehensive reintegration strategy, which includes prioritizing vaccination for the broader hospitality industry and establishing clear metrics for phased reopening to 100 percent capacity of indoor dining,” Winslow said.
Nearly 3,000 Michigan restaurants have closed amid Whitmer’s orders.
As soon as Biden took office, Governor Cuomo of New York and Mayor Lightfoot of Chicago made similar announcements, saying it’s time to open up businesses. CNN also removed their death toll counter which has been on their screen all year. The timing is just amazing… After destroying the economy, shutting down thousands of businesses and ruining millions of lives, they will proclaim COVID has been beaten and President Joe Biden is a hero. These Democrat Governors are pure evil.
