Stateside: Monday, Feb. 26, 2024

On this episode of Stateside, we previewed tomorrow's Presidential primary. More than a million Michiganders have already voted via absentee ballot or at early polling stations. Then, we heard a discussion with a retired U-M Dearborn professor whose most recent book examines the media myths of refugees versus the realities they face in Michigan. We finished the show by talking with a reporter who has been following the Nikki Haley campaign across the state.
