52nd District State Representative Gretchen Driskell has received the endorsement of former Michigan Governor William Milliken in her bid for a congressional seat. Driskell is a Democrat from Saline. Milliken was the state's longest serving Governor and did so as a Republican from 1969 to 1983. Driskell says both she and Milliken value being able to work across party lines.
"It's a great honor to have his endorsement. It's a very positive thing because it really reflects, you know, my values are very similar [for example] my approach to of how to lead to good policy."
Driskell is running against incumbent Republican Congressman Tim Walberg for the 7th District U.S. House seat.
