Detroit businessman Dan Gilbert had a serious stroke in May 2019. He spoke with reporter Chad Livengood about what life has been like since then.

Today on Stateside, a super PAC funded by the DeVos family has raised $800,000 to unseat Democratic U.S. Senator Gary Peters. We talk about how spending by outside groups could impact the state's most competitive 2020 races. Plus, an update on the Michigan family caught in a coronavirus scare on a cruise ship.
