Michigan: Two Governor recall efforts approved

Two recall petitions have been approved against Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D), though this article notes that the recall effort can be a big boon to Whitmer (as she can get unlimited donations to fight the recall). 

The petitioner cited the COVID-19 shut downs. Petitioners would need 1,062,647 signatures to get on the ballot, and thanks to changes in the law enacted by the GOP-led legislatures in 2012, a removal of Whitmer would simply lead to the elevation of the Lieutenant Governor.

There is also an attempt to recall the Attorney General Dana Nessel (D), though no word on how that has worked.
