GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Last week was a busy one for politics in Michigan as presidential candidates stumped and debated in the days leading up to the state’s primary.

The front-runners from both parties — billionaire Donald Trump for the Republicans and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democrats — made stops in Warren and Cadillac and Detroit, respectively.

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, also a Democrat, attended several rallies and events. 24 Hour News 8 political reporter Rick Albin spoke to him one-on-one on Saturday, the day after his rally at Grand Valley State University.
