Whitmer suggests she felt “sigh of relief” when not picked for Biden VP

Speaking to Detroit’s Fox 2, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer said “If Joe Biden had called and said ‘I need you to be my partner and be my running mate’ I would have said yes. This election was that important.”

However, Whitmer at least claims perhaps she didn’t want the role that badly.

“There might have been a sigh of relief over here at the governor’s residence,” Whitmer added “I think everyone was pleased with the outcome.”

Whitmer was national co-chair of Biden’s presidential campaign and supported Biden’s choice of Kamala Harris.

I am extraordinarily proud to support @KamalaHarris and @JoeBiden ! They will be a fierce team to Build America Back Better,” she tweeted in August.
