Detroit political consultant Steve Hood says the Black Lives Matter movement made a mistake talking about defunding police departments. U.S. Senate candidate John James "blew it" when he didn't march early in the George Floyd reaction protests and "now it's too late." Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's task force on health care and COVID-19 disparities among African Americans "is more relevant than ever." This and Hood's prediction in the U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib-Brenda Jones primary in MI-13.

Also, what would conservative Patrick Colbeck have done to combat COVID-19 if he had been governor? There would have been no lockdown. No stores would have shutdown. But would it have created more deaths? Colbeck, the former state senator and gubernatorial candidate, answers that and if he plans to run for governor in 2022.
