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

  • Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson death triggers battle to replace him.
  • Primary elections produce few surprises, little campaign spending and skimpy turnout.
  • Dems mount recall campaign against state Rep. Larry Inman, but if it appears petitioners may gather enough signatures might the state House of Representatives expel him instead?
  • Interview with Mike Kowall (R-White Lake), former state Senate majority floor leader now working at the Oakland County Executive's office.
