Karoub Special Election Report – Nov. 7, 2018

Posted by: Jennifer Gomori Posted date: November 7, 2018

With the exception of Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth Clement’s victory, it was a big night for Michigan Statewide elected Democrats Tuesday, Nov. 6. Democrats placed their respective candidates in the Governor, Secretary of State, and Attorney General positions in the midterm election. Voters also returned United States Senator Debbie Stabenow to Washington and flipped two United States House seats. With about 90 percent of precincts reporting, Governor-elect Gretchen Whitmer carved out a 53 to 44 percent win over Republican Attorney General Bill Schuette. Democrat Jocelyn Benson defeated Republican Mary Treder Lang by a solid margin. Democrat Dana Nessel won a close race for Attorney General over Republican House Speaker Tom Leonard. Senate Republicans managed to maintain a 22-16 majority in the state Senate and Republicans will retain control of the Michigan House of Representatives for the 2019-2020 term although Democrats did pick up five seats. Please be advised that these are unofficial results. More detailed unofficial results can be found in the Nov. 7, 2018 Karoub Special Election Report below and on the Secretary of State’s website at www.michigan.gov/sos.
