Michigan Election Results Midterms 2022

Elections 2022

(NewsNation) — NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ has called the Michigan gubernatorial race for incumbent Democrat Gretchen Whitmer.

Decision Desk HQ also called the U.S. House race for Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District for Democrat Hillary Scholten and Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee for the state’s 8th Congressional District.

Republicans were hoping to flip the governorship in their favor after the Democratic win in 2018 along with maintaining control of the U.S. House and U.S. Senate.

Whitmer fought off first-time candidate Republican Tudor Dixon, who had former President Donald Trump’s endorsement and has echoed his false claims about widespread voter fraud during the 2020 election.

Also drawing national attention is the race for Attorney General between Democratic incumbent Dana Nessel and her Trump-backed Republican opponent Matt DePerno. DePerno, a staunch supporter of Trump’s 2020 election narrative, is currently under investigation for an alleged conspiracy to tamper with voting machines.

Abortion will also be on the ballot with Proposal 3 asking Michigan voters if they want to enshrine abortion rights into state law. 

On Tuesday, 470 seats in the U.S. Congress — 35 Senate seats and all 435 House seats — went up for election, along with races for governor and secretary of state in several states. These elections will determine who has legislative control at the state level, and ultimately, who sets the agenda for President Joe Biden’s remaining years in office.
