Governor and Lt. Governor to join Detroit Leaders for NFL Draft

Governor Whitmer and Lieutenant Governor Gilchrist will join the N.F.L., Detroit Lions, and many local leaders in Detroit to celebrate the hosting of the 2024 N.F.L. draft.

The selection comes a year after Whitmer and many others urged the N.F.L. to consider Detroit for this event.

The governor’s office says “[t]he NFL’s selection is a testament to Detroit’s spirit and marks another major organization making an historic investment in Michigan.”

The event is today (April 14) at 5:00 P.M.
