Flint of course, is mired in a water crisis, which many put at the feet of Michigan’s Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. You have Detroit, with a school system about to run out of money and facing a shutdown unless either the state or federal government bails it out.
So it’s a particularly scarred battleground to which the GOP candidates head, to do battle against each other. The anti-Trump panic amongst the GOP establishment has spiked, as have the personal attacks with some effectiveness, so things really should get mean and nasty Thursday night. You have that whole Trump-Megan Kelly thing again.
