Welcome to The 8th: A new political reporting project from Michigan Radio
Welcome to Michigan’s 8th Congressional District: a toss-up district in a toss-up state.
From now through November, we’ll be bringing you here. Not to blast you with the latest polling numbers or snarky soundbites (if 2016 taught us anything, it’s that the political professionals can miss something fundamental happening in this country.) We’re taking you into the lives of voters, their worlds, and their beliefs. So that when 2020 happens, whatever happens, you’ll understand why.
