LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Democrats have nominated candidates for the November ballot in their drive to wrest control of state government from Republicans.
Candidates for attorney general, secretary of state, lieutenant governor and Supreme Court were chosen Sunday in Lansing. They ran unopposed.
Gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer's running mate is Oakland County Clerk Lisa Brown. Michigan State University associate law professor Mark Totten will face Attorney General Bill Schuette. Detroit attorney Godfrey Dillard will face Secretary of State Ruth Johnson.
Democrats on Saturday picked two candidates for the high court along with nominees for the state education board and university boards. State appeals Judge William Murphy's selection for a Supreme Court nomination drew some opposition because of his anti-abortion views, but no one ran against him.
