Whitmer: ‘I’m Grateful’ for Pence’s Work – I Hope Feds ‘Get a Lot More Aggressive’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) stated that the federal government needs to combat the coronavirus more aggressively and there needs to be a national strategy, but that she is “grateful for the work that Mike Pence is doing.”

Whitmer said, “I think the shortage of tests and all of these other important, critical things that we need to combat this crisis is because it wasn’t taken seriously enough in the early stages. And I’m hopeful that the federal government will get a lot more aggressive. I’m grateful for the work that Mike Pence is doing. And I think that there are people in the administration who get it. But we all have to be on the same page here and have a national strategy.”
