Hillary Clinton wants former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm to help shape her administration if she's able to win, reports say.
According to Chad Livengood of the Detroit News:
"Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm will co-chair Hillary Clinton’s transition team should the Democratic presidential candidate win the White House in November.
The Clinton campaign on Tuesday announced a transition team that Granholm will co-chair along with former national security adviser Tom Donilon, Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden and Maggie Williams, director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard University."
The news drew immediate fire.
"Hillary's vision for America-bringing Michigan's economic malaise known as the "Lost Decade" to the entire nation," said Trump Michigan State Director Scott Hagerstrom responding to the announcement in a Facebook statement.
"If this isn't proof that Hillary Clinton is tied to failed policies of the past, remember Jennifer Granholm as Governor, when Michigan lost 17% of all jobs - hundreds of thousands of jobs lost - ...lower wages," Hagerstrom said.
HRC and Granholm are the what America needs? Sure...
