‘Michigan Matters’ Focus: Presidential Politics, Flint, And Status Of Women

With a Republican presidential debate in Detroit this Thursday, a Democratic presidential debate next Sunday, and Michigan’s primary held March 8 — it was talk of politics that dominated the “Michigan Matters” roundtable conversation.

Susy Avery, former chair of the Michigan Republican Party, Kelly Rossman-McKinney, CEO of Truscott Rossman, and Terry Barclay, president & CEO of Inforum, joined host Carol Cain to talk about the presidential race.

Front and center was conversation about Donald Trump and his imprint on the GOP.

Talk also focused on Hillary Clinton and her strategy should she prevail in winning the democratic nomination and if Trump, who has been the GOP front-runner, also wins.

The panel also talked about Gov. Rick Snyder’s role in the Flint lead-tainted water crisis.

Snyder is slated to testify before Congress about the Flint saga on March 17.

On other matters, Detroit Public Schools was another hot topic as the district faces financial woes that could see it run out of money in several weeks.

And with Women’s History Month starting on Tuesday, the panel also talked about how women were faring in business, politics and more.

You can hear the fast-moving conversation by watching “Michigan Matters” 11:30 a.m Sunday only on CBS 62.
