The Washington Post mentions Michigan's governor as a candidate to head the Department of Labor:
What she offers: Granholm has grappled with many of the problems now confronting the nation's workforce: a contraction of jobs and the need to retrain workers for a shifting economy. She also is one of the economic advisers for President-elect Barack Obama's transition team.
Unlike in Arizona, the lieutenant governor in Michigan is a Democrat. Governors and lieutenant governors are elected on a ticket in Michigan.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
