Bottom Line

It’s hard to feel confident making predictions about Michigan since hardly anybody expected the state to vote for Donald Trump in 2016. Republican Governor Snyder cannot seek re-election due to term limits and both parties have plenty of candidates interested in replacing him. Should be interesting to watch.
