DETROIT (AP) — Michigan Democrat Debbie Stabenow has won a third term in the U.S. Senate. Stabenow defeated former Congressman Pete Hoekstra, who failed to gain traction with Internet ads labeling Stabenow "the worst senator." She rode a big fundraising and airtime advantage to victory.
Two veteran Michigan congressmen are going back to the U.S. House. Democrat John Dingell has won his 29th full term and Democrat John Conyers his 25th. Both were running in newly-drawn districts.
In some of the races in the U.S. House of Representatives, winners included: Bill Huizena, Justin Amash, Fred Upton and Tim Walberg.
In the State House of Representatives races...winners included: Jase Bolger, Rick Outman, Ken Yonker, Peter MacGregor, Winnie Brinks, Tom Hooker, Lisa Lyons, Roger Victory, Amanda
Price, and Joe Haveman.
All 6 Proposals in Michigan went down to defeat. The closest results were in Proposal 1, which was the emergency manager law, and that wasn't decided until around 4:30 Wednesday morning.
Voters in several Michigan cities backed initiatives to decriminalize marijuana in some cases. The Grand Rapids Press reports about 60 percent of voters supported a proposal to amend the city charter so people possessing or using marijuana no longer would be subject to a misdemeanor offense. Marijuana proposals also passed yesterday in Flint and Detroit.
