LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Tudor Dixon is trying to link Governor Gretchen Whitmer to President Biden, blaming them both for creating a recession.
However, the Governor’s Budget Director says we are not in a recession now, but the potential is there for one.
Gas prices are falling, but $2 gas is just a fond memory.
Food costs remain high, and Tudor Dixon is now tossing around the word “recession,” saying Whitmer’s pressure on Biden’s policies has put Americans in one.
“Whitmer applauded Biden’s policies as he pushed us into a recession,” Dixon said.
However, the governor’s budget director disagrees, saying there are signs of a recession.
“So it’s hard for us to say for sure whether we’re in a recession or not,” said state budget director Chris Harkins.
Governor Whitmer notes that she cannot solve this national problem.
But candidate Dixon won’t back down from tying the governor to the president, hoping his low popularity rubs off on her.
“Whitmer rolls with Biden as he drives our economy into the ground,” Dixon said.
One way to avoid this is to avoid appearances with the President and the guess is that Governor Whitmer will do just that.
