Gov. Gretchen Whitmer: "That woman from Michigan"

In her first term, Michigan's Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer weathered the ire of MAGA Republicans and the former president, as well as a foiled kidnapping plot.

She talks with correspondent Martha Teichner about her agenda, and how she turned Donald Trump's label for her ("That woman from Michigan") into a badge of honor.
