Republicans keep majorities in Michigan’s House and Senate, despite Democrats’ gain

From the Arab American News

LANSING — Michigan Republicans will retain majorities in the Michigan House and Senate despite losing seats to Democrats in Tuesday’s election, stopping a blue wave that swept the state’s highest offices and setting the stage for a divided government that will be led by Democratic Governor-elect Gretchen Whitmer.

Senate pickups included the Seventh District, where Democrat Dayna Polehanki of Livonia defeated Republican state Rep. Laura Cox (R-Livonia), and the 20th Senate District, where former Rep. Sean McCann of Kalamazoo unseated incumbent Sen. Margaret O’Brien (R-Portage).

Democrats also gained Senate seats in Oakland County’s 13th District, where challenger Mallory McMorrow of Royal Oak defeated incumbent Sen. Marty Knollenberg of Troy; the 12th District where Rosemary Bayer of Beverly Hills beat GOP Rep. Mike McCready of Bloomfield Township and the 29th District, where Rep. Winnie Brinks of Grand Rapids thwarted Rep. Chris Afendoulis of Grand Rapids Township.
