Daniel Howes' Weekend Essay

Detroit News Columnist Daniel Howes and Michigan Radio are partners in weekly essays examining what's hot in Michigan business and politics – and what it all means. This week, Howes says Michigan’s governing Republicans head into this weekend’s convention divided. And the split, despite predictable claims of “unity” going in the fall campaign, comes down to Rick Snyder, Bill Schuette and the Flint Water Crisis – with a health dose of the Trump Effect weighing on the whole sordid mess. That’d be a sure recipe for electoral disaster if the Democrats didn’t have their own problems.
