Sarah Rahal and Craig Mauger | November 21, 2019


Governor Whitmer is not responsible for foreign policy, said Noah Arbit, chairman of the Michigan Democratic Jewish Caucus.


“Anyone who is trying to score political points about the trip isn’t really focused on what she’s there to do," Arbit added.


Whitmer is there to advance the interests of Michigan and strengthen business ties, Arbit said. He called Whitmer a "great supporter of the Jewish community."
