Whitmer is in the running with:

  • Netflix Co-CEO Ted Sarandos
  • Rapper Kanye West
  • Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai
  • Pope Francis
  • Singer Billie Eilish
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci
  • Prince Harry
  • Artist Megan Thee Stallion
  • Vice President Mike Pence
  • Global warming activist Greta Thunberg, who won in 2019
  • Artist Bad Bunny
  • Black Lives Matter activists
  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)
  • Former Vice President Joe Biden
  • Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is the only other state-level politician in the running.
