    Oh boy, the anti-Granholm mob will have fun with this.  They are talking in California about running the former Michigan governor for something as part of the “new generation” of D’s on the west bank.

    It’s really a shame that the real world is not paying attention to the U.S. Senate race because the two camps are passionately engaged in a war of news releases, we-thought—you-should-know email alerts to the media, and a never ending back and forth as they scratch for some advantage in this bitter battle to replace Carl Levin.

LANSING, Mich. (WJBK) -

Gov. Rick Snyder says he wants the state to pump $350 million into Detroit to reduce the losses retirees will likely take in bankruptcy court, but he will not push for that aid until after Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr releases his bankruptcy exit plan.  
 
Senate GOP Leader Randy Richardville will meet with federal Judge Rosen this week for an update on the state's role. He has told the governor lawmakers need to move on this sooner than later before the opponents are successful in calling this a bail out for Detroit.

"It's easy to say, 'This is a Detroit bailout,' for instance, which it's not. It's not even close to that. This is a specific piece of the overall problem that is geared toward helping people with pensions to be comfortable that they're not going to lose those pensions. It gives them back a majority of what they believe that they already have," Richardville says.

The Senate wants strings attached to the state aid, but Rep. David Nathan, (D) Detroit, tells FOX 2's Tim Skubick Detroit doesn't need the strings and that he may vote no if they are attached.

    The city of Detroit says workers and retirees have approved pension cuts, a crucial step to emerging from the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. The city reported results Monday after two months of balloting ended July 11. A judge still must hold a trial to determine if Detroit's overall bankruptcy plan is fair and feasible, but support from retirees is vital.
