Michigan Democrats pick their favorites in state races
DETROIT (AP) — Democrats have chosen their favorites for this fall's Michigan Supreme Court and education board races, hoping once again to give their candidates a five-month jump in fundraising and campaigning over Republicans.
Votes at Saturday's state convention in Detroit were nonbinding, since Democrats can't nominate candidates until the party's September convention. Republicans will nominate candidates in August.
Endorsed for the state Supreme Court were Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Connie Kelley, Oakland County District Court Judge Shelia Johnson and Bridget McCormack of the University of Michigan Law School's Innocence Project.
State Board of Education candidates are Lupe Ramos-Montigny of Grand Rapids and union official Michelle Fecteau of Wayne State University.
Also named were candidates for the boards of Michigan State and Wayne State universities and University of Michigan.
