Last week, U.S. Rep. Sander Levin, D-Mich., confirmed that he will retire at the end of this term. On Wednesday, Andy Levin announced his bid to succeed his father. State Sen. Steve Bieda launched his campaign for the Washington D.C. a few hours later.

This Week in Review, Weekend Edition host Rebecca Kruth and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry talk about what kind of advantage Andy Levin could have as a legacy candidate.

They also discuss a lawsuit that says Michigan's emergency manager law discriminates against the state's black population, the scaled-back municipal retirement plan overhaul that passed the state Legislature this week, and the final days of the Pontiac Silverdome.
