Stateside: Snyder endorses Biden; Detroit’s child care crisis; from antique restorer to mask maker

Gov. Rick Snyder
In a surprising endorsement, two-term Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, a Republican, has endorsed Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential race.

Today on Stateside, Michigan’s political world got baked into an upside down cake on Thursday as former Republican Governor Rick Snyder endorsed Joe Biden, and Democrat Mark Hackel threw his support behind a push to limit Governor Whitmer’s emergency powers. We'll talk to a reporter covering the party-flipping endorsements. Plus, we hear from a Detroit child care provider who is feeling the financial pressure as the pandemic continues and parents remain at home.
