Dems, GOP select MSC candidates at weekend conventions

Michigan Republicans and Democrats selected their slates of Michigan Supreme Court candidates at party conventions held this past weekend.

Republicans chose Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Colleen O’Brien to run for a full, eight-year term on the MSC. O’Brien topped Court of Appeals Judge Jane Markey for the spot.

Justice Stephen Markman was nominated to run for another full term. Justice Brian Zahra will run for a partial, two-year term.

Democrats selected 46th District Court Judge Shelia Johnson to run against Zahra for the two-year term.

Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Connie Marie Kelly and Bridget Mary McCormack, a University of Michigan law professor, were nominated to run for eight-year terms.

Although nominated by political parties, all MSC candidates appear on the nonpartisan section of the November ballot.
