Bridge Michigan’s monthly Lunch Break series continued Thursday with a roundtable discussion of the state’s primary results and their implications for the Nov. 8 general election.

If you missed Thursday’s discussion, you can watch it on-demand below.


Bridge’s Zahra Ahmad, Lauren Gibbons, Jonathan Oosting and Yue Stella Yu, participated in this discussion. Managing Editor Joel Kurth moderated. Topics included the results of gubernatorial primaries, surprising election results from across the state, the impact of the new electoral maps, what out-of-state voting results on reproductive rights might suggest for Michigan’s November ballot initiatives, the impact of “culture war” issues on candidates and campaigns, what voters can expect in the lead up to the general election and more.

Bridge’s Lunch Break monthly series focuses on timely topics facing our state. Previous discussions have included examinations tracking Michigan’s economic progress, how COVID has impacted Michigan’s K-12 students, Michigan’s new redistricting maps, Michigan’s eldercare crisis, and COVID mandates and K-12 education.
