In July, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm spoke at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

We talk with former Gov. Jennifer Granholm about the 2016 presidential election. She’s serving on Hillary Clinton’s transition team.

If Hillary Clinton is elected President in November, a very familiar figure from Michigan will be part of her move to the White House. Former Gov. Jennifer Granholm, a Clinton supporter in this campaign and in  2008, has been tapped to serve as a member of the candidate’s transition team if she wins in November.

Granholm has been a two-term governor and state attorney general.  Today, she teaches at the University of California-Berkeley and advises the Clinton campaign.

Current State’s Scott Pohl speaks with Jennifer Granholm about Hillary Clinton and the 2016 campaign.

Scott Pohl is a general assignment news reporter and produces news features and interviews. He is also an alternate local host on NPR's "Morning Edition."
