DETROIT – It has been a very hot political week in Michigan. Both President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate for president, Joe Biden, campaigned in the state.

While the president and Michigan’s governor lock horns over the response to the coronavirus, a new poll gives us the current snapshot.

And Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan is turning to voters to keep clearing out dilapidated houses in Detroit because the federal money for it has run out.

We touched bases on all these topics Sunday with guests.
