Gov. Jennifer Granholm made the case for DaimlerChrysler to grow its investments in Michigan Tuesday during a meeting with Dieter Zetsche, the company's chairman.

But the meeting didn't yield any announcements or decisions, Granholm spokeswoman Liz Boyd said.

Boyd called the 45-minute meeting "productive."

DaimlerChrysler is considerng selling its Chrysler Group unit. Analysts say private equity firms are the leading potential buyers.

Since its unclear what exactly a sale would mean for Michigan jobs, the governor isn't necessarily in support of or opposed to a sale, Boyd said. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
