Projected Republican Sweep of Michigan's Executive Branch

by

LANSING, MI (WHTC News) - It looks as if the Republicans will sweep the three executive branch elected offices in Tuesday's Michigan General Election.

According to the MIRS news agency, Republican gubernatorial nominee Rick SNYDER will be Michigan's 48th governor after projections based on early precinct results show Snyder performing over what he statistically would need to reach 50 percent of the vote and Democratic gubernatorial nominee Virgil BERNERO is significantly underperforming what he would need to reach 50 percent of the vote.

In addition, Republican Secretary of State nominee Ruth JOHNSON and Attorney General nominee Bill SCHUETTE will win their respective races based on early precinct reports that were compared to projected "break-even" numbers provided by Practical Political Consultants.

Supreme Court Justice Bob will win re-election and Republican-nominated Mary Beth KELLY, a Wayne County Circuit Court judge, will win the two open seats on the state Supreme Court, swinging the balance of the court in 2011 back to the Republicans, 4 to 3. Early precincts results show strong performances from Young and Kelly throughout the state, even in Democratic areas.
