Zach Gorchow sees some parallels between Donald Trump's presidential campaign strategy and Geoffrey Fieger's 1998 run for Michigan Governor

The Republicans have one candidate left standing for the party's presidential nomination.

Senator Ted Cruz and Governor John Kasich both suspended their campaigns this week, leaving Donald Trump as the presumptive nominee.

In a blog post, Zach Gorchow with Gongwer sees some parallels between this year's politics and a past race for Michigan governor. 

On today's Stateside, Gorchow takes us all the way back to 1998, when Geoffrey Fieger succeed in a "hostile takeover" of the Michigan Democratic Party.
