“Take me in, oh tender woman. Take me in, for heaven’s sake. Take me in, oh tender woman,’ sighed the vicious snake.”
She wasted no time capitalizing on this dynamic. The first call Whitmer made, after winning the primary in a landslide, was to Brian Calley, the lieutenant governor. He had just lost the Republican primary to Bill Schuette, the polarizing attorney general.

(Calley declined to comment.)
