Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) is in serious talks to co-chair the Priorities USA super PAC with former Obama campaign manager Jim Messina.

According to Politico, Granholm is being “seriously considered” for the top job. She would be running the powerful superPAC alongside Jim Messina, who served as President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign manager.

Buzzfeed, meanwhile, reports Grahnolm has been “tapped” to lead the super PAC. Buzzfeed also reports that John Podesta, the former head of the Center for American Progress, was originally being eyed to co-chair the super PAC. Podesta, however, is headed to serve as a top adviser in the Obama administration.

Granholm has served as an informal adviser to the super PAC.
