The 27<sup>th</sup> is a heavily Democratic district which likely means Tuesday’s primary win will mean Ananich will win the May special election. Still Ananich insists he won’t take his Republican opponent lightly.</p> Wed, 13 Mar 2013 05:34:05 +0000 Steve Carmody 11663 at http://michiganradio.org May special election set for vacant state senate seat
