Bill Ballenger and Dennis Denno interview future State Rep. Cynthia Neeley of Flint, a Democrat who won Tuesday's special election for a vacancy, so we post their Deadline Detroit-sponsored podcast two days earlier than usual.  Neeley is seeking the seat left vacant when her husband Sheldon was elected Flint's mayor last fall.

The hosts also discuss whether "fix the damn roads" will be in the governor's second State of the State address Jan. 29 and update the status of Rep. Larry Inman, R-Williamsburg, acquited last month of lying to the FBI. After a six-day trial and nearly 12 hours of deliberations, federal jurors in Grand Rapids couldn't reach verdicts on charges of attempted extortion and bribe solicitation.
