Stateside: GOP clerk on trusting the process; podcast on disgraced cancer doc; COVID in UP hospitals

But on a county by county level, Michigan’s elections appear to have run remarkably smoothly. We check in with a county clerk about how the tabulation process went. Also, a reporter discusses an Upper Peninsula hospital’s preparations for another COVID-19 surge.
