Whitmer and Trump

Bill Ballenger and Dennis Denno, veterans of Michigan politics, discuss timely issues on "The Friday Morning Podcast," sponsored by Deadline Detroit:

  • Gov. Gretchen Whitmer backtracks on insistence that the Legislature send her a 2020 budget that includes adequate funding to 'fix the damn roads." Does that mean the path to resolve differences she has with lawmakers by Oct. 1 is easier?  Apparently not, at least not right away.
  • Whitmer has unexpected support on at least one issue from President Trump, who agrees that flavored vaping products should be banned.
  • Interview with Tony Minghine, chief operating officer of Michigan Municipal League.
