President Biden won the Michigan Democratic presidential primary Tuesday by a wide margin, despite a push by those upset by his administration's policies about the war in Gaza to vote uncommitted.

Meanwhile, former president Trump won the state's Republican presidential primary, as widely expected.

And, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced he would leave his leadership position in November. He is the longest-serving Republican leader in the history of the Senate.

This episode: White House correspondent Asma Khalid, campaign reporter Elena Moore, senior White House correspondent Tamara Keith, and political correspondent Susan Davis.
