GOP eyes continued Michigan Supreme Court majority

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, MI (AP) -

Republicans hoping to maintain their 4-3 majority on the Michigan Supreme Court appear on course, though the race is still too close to call.

There were three seats on the court being decided by voters on Election Day. The first went to incumbent Justice Brian Zahra, a Republican nominee.

But the race for the other two seats was still too close to call early Wednesday morning. There are seven candidates vying for those two spots, and the top two vote getters will win.

Incumbent Justice Stephen Markman, also a Republican, is holding the lead, followed by law professor Bridget McCormack, a Democrat.

If successful, McCormack would be the first non-judge elected to the court since 1986. But right behind her is the other Republican candidate, Oakland County Judge Colleen O'Brien.
