Surprises, the predicted, and some serious jabs: a convention roundup
It was a busy political weekend as Michigan Democrats and Republicans held their respective conventions.
Two reporters joined Stateside to talk about what happened at the conventions. Chris Gautz is a Lansing reporter for Crain's Detroit Business. Chad Livengood is a Lansing reporter for The Detroit News.
Here are a few highlights of the interview:

- Nomination of Michigan Supreme Court justice candidate William Murphy at the Democratic convention
- Nomination of Maria Carl of Macomb County on the State Board of Education seat at the GOP convention
