LANSING (WWJ) – While Democrats celebrated the re-election of Barack Obama, Republican Governor Rick Snyder was busy putting party lines aside, saying he is ready to work with the president.
“I’ve worked with President Obama already, again, I respect whoever is the president of the United States – that’s the right answer – they’re the federal government, we are the state government. I work with federal and local levels all the time, and I’m going to continue to do that. That’s part of positive, relentless action,” said Snyder.
