Watch our Bridge Lunch Break event about Michigan’s election results

November lunch break

Bridge Michigan’s monthly Lunch Break series returned Wednesday with a discussion of Michigan’s midterm election results.

If you missed this live Zoom event, you can watch it on-demand below.


Bridge Capitol reporters Lauren Gibbons, Jonathan Oosting and Yue Stella Yu participated in this roundtable event the day after the election, reporting on the results, the paths to victory for the successful candidates and the potential implications of the vote on our state. The discussion was moderated by Bridge managing editor Joel Kurth. 


Topics included victory for the incumbents in the gubernatorial, secretary of state and attorney general races;  the passage of all three ballot proposals; Democrats taking the majority in the state house and senate; the results of highly-contested congressional races in Michigan; the ways that redistricting impacted election outcomes; polling accuracy and much more.

Bridge’s Lunch Break monthly series focuses on timely topics facing our state. Previous discussions have included examinations of inflation’s impact in Michigan, teacher staffing challenges in K-12 schools, August’s primary election results, youth mental health in Michigan, Bridge’s 10th anniversary, Michigan’s elder caregiving crisis, and Michigan’s new redistricting maps.
