With a week to go before election night, discussing politics over drinks seemed a good idea Tuesday night.
That’s when Michigan Radio held its final Issues & Ale election preview event before the fateful Nov. 8.
The event took place at HopCat in Detroit and Michigan Radio’s senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry hosted.
Panelists were Brandon Dillon, chair of the Michigan Democratic Party, Aaron Foley, editor of BLAC Detroit Magazine, Republican consultant Stu Sandler and Zoe Clark, co-host of Michigan Radio’s It’s Just Politics.
While conversation moved through various topics, all of which related to the ballot Michigan voters will see next Tuesday, one idea continued to take the forefront: the polarization this election has caused between people in this country.
