Granholm Re-elected

Jennifer Granholm was celebrating in Detroit on Tuesday night.
The Michigan governor was re-elected for a second term.

She was the clear winner over republican challenger Dick Devos, winning 57% percent of the vote.

Both candidates spent the past several weekstouring the state by bus.

Last week, Granholm was in Southwest Michigan, making stops in Benton Harbor and Niles.

She says one of her top priorities this term will be to expand Michigan's economy. "I've been there when Benton Harbor was struggling to be a partner in that Harbor Shores Revitalization. To make sure the schools are healthy and our health care system will appeal to all our citizens. I've been there and I will continue to be there.”

Granholm is Michigan's 47th governor.

She was first elected to the job back in 2002.

This Governor's race was the most expensive in Michigan's history.
