Southfield (CBS 62) – With Michigan’s primary less than a month away, it was all hands on deck as the CBS 62 MICHIGAN MATTERS roundtable of Business Executive Denise Ilitch, former State Rep. John C. Stewart, and Westland Mayor William Wild appeared with Host Carol Cain to talk about the state of the presidential contest.
Wild, who has endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden, admitted the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary did not go well. However, Wild was still optimistic with primaries coming up in states with more diverse populations would buttress the Democratic candidate’s bid.READ MORE: Michigan Matters: Helping Young Folks & Cancer Patients
