Democrat Women Take Back Office in Historic Midterm Election
Election day has come to an end and the results are in.
Women have made history across the nation including right here in our very own state.
Democrat Gretchen Whitmer took the lead in the race for governor against Republican Candidate Bill Schuette.
Whitmer began her political career as a State Representative back in 2001 and in 2006 was elected into the State Senate.
In 2016 , she stepped up as prosecutor for Ingham County after the elected prosecutor was forced to resign.
Whitmer say that she will continue to challenge the status quo.
Voters across the state re-elected Democrat Debbie Stabenow to the U.S. Senate in a win against Republican candidate Jon James. Stabenow was first elected to the senate in 2000.
Another big win for women, Democrat Dana Nessel took the lead against Tom Leonard in the race for Attorney General.
And lastly in the race for Secretary of State, voters chose Democratic candidate Jocelyn Benson.
