The news is filled with stories of the economic beating Detroit, Michigan has taken lately, but the politics there aren't doing too well either. Today voters in Detroit will elect a new mayor after Kwame Kilpatrick was ousted from office and convicted of lying under oath. Two mayoral candidates, Dave Bing and Mayor Ken Cockrel, Jr., are hoping to breath new life into the politically-beleaguered city. Joining us with all the details of the race is Noah Ovshinsky, a political reporter for WDET in Detroit.
