Gov. Whitmer Visited Sick Father in Florida Last Month

Governor Whitmer’s office says she travelled to Florida last month to visit her father.

According to the governor’s office, Whitmer’s father has a chronic illness.

They say Whitmer was tested for COVID-19 regularly and the trip was not paid for with tax dollars.

Two of the governor’s top aides vacationed in Florida this spring after Whitmer warned against travel out of state.

Republicans have accused the aides and the governor of hypocrisy for defying their own guidance.
