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.
