Political roundup: A Trump loss could damage Michigan GOP for years to come

Oct 21, 2016

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is putting members of his own party in Michigan in a tough spot. With slumping poll numbers, there are some concerns that he could have a negative impact on down-ballot races in the Great Lakes State.

With Trump at the top of the ticket, what is the state of the Michigan Republican Party? There's party infighting, concerns about possibly losing the state House in November, and some candidates simply refusing to endorse or even answer questions about their party's presidential nominee, Donald Trump. 

Joining Stateside for the weekly political roundup is Ken Sikkema, a senior policy fellow at Public Sector Consultant and Susan Demas, publisher of Inside Michigan Politics. 

Listen to the full interview as they break out their crystal balls and predict what impact Donald Trump could have in the short-term and in the long-term for Michigan's Republican Party.
