PORTAGE, Wisc. — A judge has ruled a Wisconsin man accused in a plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer should be extradited to Michigan, but he will be given a chance to appeal first.
A Columbia County, Wisconsin judge rejected the defense argument that the Michigan extradition order should not be granted, arguing that Whitmer has a conflict of interest because she's the victim.
Higgins was released on bond back in October, but must remain within two Wisconsin counties until his case is decided.
