Stateside for Monday, April 21, 2014
We know it's there. It seems like it’s everywhere - money in political campaigns. And now with the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in McCutcheon vs. Federal Election Commission, we're going to see even more of it.
Today we look at what elections in Michigan will look like post-McCutcheon.
And we spoke with author Vic Strecher. He lost his daughter Julia to heart disease when she was 19. That loss sent him on a voyage through philosophy, biology, psychology, literature, neuroscience and Egyptology.
We delved into his new book “On Purpose” later in the show.
But first we spoke with Michigan Radio’s political analyst, Jack Lessenberry about the upcoming elections.
We are a little more than four months away from the statewide primaries, the statewide Republican and Democratic conventions, and some seven months away from the general election in November. Among many local and Congressional races, that's also when Michiganders will go to the polls to vote for Governor, Attorney General and Secretary of State.
