Young leads in campaign cash in MSC race

Justice Robert P. Young Jr. has raised more money than his three closest contenders combined in the Michigan Supreme Court race.

According to the Michigan Campaign Finance Network, Young, a Republican, has raised some $514,000, with newly named candidate Justice Alton T. Davis a distant second with $194,000.

Among the most interesting facts in the report is the amount of early support the Republican party has given Young and fellow Republican Mary Beth Kelly – $61,000 and $60,000 respectively – while the Democratic party has contributed less than $7,000 to Denise Langford Morris, and has not yet reported any contribution to Davis.

Young’s largest contributors thus far are health care, insurance and finance PACs, with the Michigan Health & Hospital Association Health PAC, Michigan Bankers Association PAC, Michigan Farm BureauPAC and Auto Club of Michigan PAC contributing $22,500, $15,000, $15,000 and $13,200. Davis’ single largest contributor is the Michigan Education Association PAC, which contributed $17,000.
