Granholm: I’ll take stimulus money that GOP governors turn down
Fox invited two Democratic Governors, Jennifer Granholm and Ed Rendell, and two Republican governors, Tim Pawlenty and Mark Sanford, to debate use of the stimulus money. Sanford is one of several Republican governors that say they may not take some or all of the stimulus money offered to their state.
Granholm is more than willing to take the money refused by Republican governors. “You better believe I’m going to take every dollar that is coming to Michigan and if my colleagues here, Minnesota and South Carolina, don’t use theirs, I’m going to be first in line to say for my people, for our citizens, to put people to work and to make sure they can survive through this, I’ll take their dollars, too,” she said.
