Roundup: Michigan candidate endorsements, RIP Art Van, Sen. Lucido’s punishment

stateside podcast logo

Super Tuesday has thrust Michigan into the spotlight. The state is the top prize in the Democratic presidential primary next week with 125 delegates. On our Friday political roundup, we heard about what we can expect between now and Tuesday. We also talked about the closing of furniture chain Art Van, and the news that State Senator Pete Lucido (R-Shelby Township) has been removed from one of his committee chairmanships. That comes after several women who work in politics and journalism at the Capitol say Lucido was inappropriate with them.

Our guests today were Matt Resch. He’s a public relations consultant in Lansing, and worked in former Governor John Engler's administration. Greg Bowens also joined us. He is a public relations consultant in Detroit, and was a communications director under former Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer.
