We asked Mark Brewer, the longest serving Chair of the Michigan Democratic Party, if he believes we’ll be looking at a Donald Trump-Hillary Clinton ticket this election.READ MORE: MDHHS Updates COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance For Michigan Schools
“I think that’s a possibility at this point – obviously we’ve got this unprecedented effort inside the Republican party to tear down their front-runner … what Mitt Romney did this past week was incredible,” said Brewer, “you’ve got Sarah Palin, John McCain you’ve got all the past Republican nominees the last two or three cycles jumping in the establishment is pretrified of Trump. I think Trump could do very well here in Michigan and do very well in the Midwestern states.”
Does Bernie Sanders have a real chance to win the Democratic nomination?
“Once you’re behind in terms of delegates, and Sanders is behind – significantly, it’s very hard to catch up because of the proportional voting rule – so that even though Clinton lost a couple states yesterday – she still picked up significant delegates so unless something changes dramatically, there’s some dramatic event in this race – Clinton is the front runner and I think she’s going to be the Democratic nominee.”
