As Rep. Justin Amash (R-Cascade Township) starts his tenure as an independent, he has not ruled out a run for the presidency.

As West Michigan Congressman Justin Amash stands alone, some are asking if he’ll join the crowded field of presidential candidates. And in one Michigan community, a local-versus-state debate about schools seems stuck at a stand-off.

Libertarian columnist and news analyst Shikha Dalmia joined Morning Edition host Doug Tribou to look at the latest in Michigan politics. 

Dalmia is a columnist at The Week and a senior analyst for the Reason Foundation. She lives in Metro Detroit.

Doug Tribou joined the Michigan Radio staff as the host of Morning Edition in 2016. Doug first moved to Michigan in 2015 when he was awarded a Knight-Wallace journalism fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
