Granholm Explains Thinking On DNC Decision

March 24, 2011
Granholm, who was governor of Michigan from 2003 to 2011, had been mentioned as a possible candidate for the job since it's widely expected the current chairman, Tim Kaine, will step down to run for the Senate in Virginia. She reportedly informed party officials last week she was not interested in the position. She says the next DNC chair needs to understand what it's like to lose jobs, a common experience among industrial belt states like Michigan that were hit the hardest in the economic recession. "It's got to be somebody who understands job loss in America and what people are feeling out there and somebody who is a passionate advocate for keeping jobs in America," Granholm said. She praised other possible candidates, including former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland (D) and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.). "I love Strickland because he is an industrial belt governor who feels it and knows it deeply," Granholm said. "Wasserman is terrific and a very passionate, articulate spokesperson."
