stateside new full show post

Today on Stateside, Rick Pluta discussed what could come next for Michigan politics after Senator Debbie Stabenow announced she will not be running for re-election in 2024. Plus, we heard the story of a French Ford Fiesta’s journey across the Atlantic Ocean - and the documentary that resulted from it.

Then, as the U.S. House of Representatives enters its third day of attempting to elect a new speaker of the House, Congresswoman Lisa McClain gave a rundown of the latest events from the House floor. To wrap up, Michigan Radio reporter Dustin Dwyer provided an update on recent changes to county governance in Ottawa County.
