It’s Just Politics: Governor Whitmer’s unexpected allies

Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Bridget Mary McCormack announced her decision to step down from the state's highest court  before the end of the year - six years before the end of her term. 

Meanwhile, in the gubernatorial race, Tudor Dixon's campaign is slowly picking up speed, and a group of Republicans has stepped forward in support of Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
