Mary Beth Kelly, Robert Young win MSC election

Voters returned incumbent Justice Robert P. Young Jr. and elected Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Mary Beth Kelly to the Michigan Supreme Court.

Come January, the political power on the MSC shifts from the current 4-3 Democratic majority to a 4-3 Republican majority.

Kelly was the top vote-getter, according to The Detroit Free Press.

It was a Republican sweep for other state-wide offices as well. Businessman Rick Snyder cruised to an easy victory over Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero for the governor’s office. Bill Schuette bested David Layton for attorney general, and Ruth Johnson topped Jocelyn Benson for secretary of state.
