Granholm, whose "home" state (she's originally from Canada) is Ground Zero for the US auto industry, told folks like Rush Limbaugh and Cavuto, the Fox Business Network anchor and ardent opponent to cars like the Chevrolet Volt, telling them to "get over it...and support American products and American jobs."
Granholm, who was Michigan governor from 2003 to 2011, said that the $1.35 billion the state received in lithium-ion battery grants supported as many as 63,000 jobs and she is lobbying for further tax breaks and incentives to spur both electric-drive vehicle production and adoption. Granholm last year blasted Limbaugh, calling his criticism of the Volt "un-American."
