Connie Binsfeld, who served in the Michigan House and Senate, as well as two terms as lieutenant governor, died Sunday at the age of 89. The Michigan Public Radio Network’s Rick Pluta covered Binsfeld in the State Senate and then as Lieutenant Governor, and Susan Demas, an MLive columnist and publisher of the “Inside Michigan Politics” newsletter also joins us to remember her legacy.
