VOTE: Do you think Michigan will be ready to reopen parts of the economy by May 1?

Speaking to Good Morning America on Friday morning, Whitmer was responding to a question George Stephanopoulos asked about Ohio's governor – who said he hopes to start opening things back up by May 1.

"I do hope to have some relaxing come May 1, but it's two weeks away and the information and the data and our ability to test is changing so rapidly it's hard to tell precisely where we'll be in a week from now much less two," Whitmer said on Friday.
