Michigan Primary

Earlier this week, the leading Democratic candidates for president — with the notable exception of Hillary Clinton — withdrew from competition in the Michigan primary set for January 15th. This comes after the Democratic National Committee threatened not to seat Michigan’s delegates at the nominating convention because the state violated the official DNC primary schedule.

I asked Michigan Democratic Congressman Dale Kildee for his reaction. He stood by his state’s decision, saying the primary system is “broken,” and that Iowa and New Hampshire have unfairly benefited from their “first-in-the-nation” status in the presidential primary process.

My full report on the story, which aired on WMUK in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and on WUOM in Ann Arbor, Michigan, can be found here.
