The Democratic candidate for Congress in Michigan's 6th Congressional District joins us, and we discuss a study on Michigan's foster care system. 

Western Michigan University Political Science Professor Paul Clements is the only Democrat running for the Southwest Michigan district currently represented by Republican Fred Upton. He tells WMUK's Gordon Evans and Kalamazoo Gazette reporter Yvonne Zipp what he would do if elected to Congress.

WMUK's Gordon Evans talks with Paul Elam of the Public Policy Associates. He was the project manager of a study showing large racial disparities in Michigan's foster care system. 

Beginning next week, WestSouthwest will air twice a week on WMUK. It can be heard Monday and Thursday mornings at 9:20. Extended interviews and more can still be found on our website.
