Issues & Ale: Michigan Politics Roundtable

Issues & Ale: Michigan Politics Roundtable Wednesday, September 29, 2021
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM - Michigan Princess Riverboat Grand River Park, Lansing, 48917

Even though we’re a year away from statewide elections, politics in Michigan are heating up. Republicans are throwing their hats in the ring to challenge Gretchen Whitmer for governor, the state’s redistricting commission has been sued because it’s unlikely to meet deadlines for drawing new districts, and the Legislature and the governor are trying to hammer out a budget by the end of the month to avoid a partial government shutdown.

Michigan Radio’s political junkie Zoe Clark was the host for this fun and fast-paced look at Michigan politics on the Michigan Princess.

If you missed it - or just want to watch/listen again, here is a video of Wednesday night's event:

Issues and Ale is an event series from Michigan Radio designed to engage people in conversations about important issues facing Michigan in an informal atmosphere. Your questions are always welcome.
