Canadian-born Gov. Granholm says she's rooting for USA hockey over Canada

Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) said Sunday she's "of course" rooting for the United States in the highly anticipated Olympic men's hockey match-up with Canada. Granholm was born in Vancouver, Canada but moved to the United States at the age of four.

"The U.S., come on!" Granholm said jokingly during an appearance on "Fox News Sunday."

"I left Canada when I was four!" she added.

Granholm's declaration comes before a very highly-anticipated matchup between the Canadian and American national hockey teams on Sunday at the Olympics, which are being held in Vancouver.

What's more, Granholm's state shares a number of waterways with Canada, making Michigan a key point of entry for goods traveling between the two countries.

"I'm American," she emphasized. "I've got dual citizenship."
