Here’s a look at some of the key races we’re tracking as of Wednesday morning:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib holds a lead over challenger, Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones. But it’s too early to call. (UPDATE: AP has called the race for Rashida Tlaib)
Kym Worthy, who has held the job since 2004, took the lead overnight, and is ahead of challenger Victoria Burton-Harris.
While Rep. Fred Upton clinched the Republican nomination again, it’s unclear who he’ll be up against in November. The Democratic side, Jon Hoadley vs. Jen Richardson, remains too close to call. Hoadley has a 5-point lead at the time of this writing. (UPDATE: Jon Hoadley has been declared the winner)
Dave Coulter, who was appointed to the position after the death of L. Brooks Patterson, holds a slight lead over Andy Meisner on the Democratic side, but it’s still too close to call. On the Republican side, Mike Kowall seems to have it wrapped up. (UPDATE: Dave Coulter has been declared the winner)
Karen McDonald is leading incumbent Jessica Cooper in the Democratic primary election for Oakland County Prosecutor. McDonald previously served as a judge on the 6th Circuit Court. She resigned from the bench in 2019. Cooper was elected Oakland County Prosecutor in November of 2008. She is the first woman to ever hold the position. (UPDATE: McDonald has been declared the winner)
