Republicans lead in SOS, AG races

DETROIT — Republicans Ruth Johnson and Bill Schuette were leading in their races for Michigan secretary of state and attorney general.

Johnson, the Oakland County clerk, was leading Democrat Jocelyn Benson 52 percent to 42 percent with 61 percent of precincts reporting in the secretary of state contest.

And in the race for attorney general, former state Appeals Court judge Schuette held a 53 percent to 43 percent lead over Democrat and Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton with 63 percent of precincts reporting.

The winner in the attorney general's race will succeed two-term Republican Mike Cox, who couldn't run again because of Michigan's term limits law.

The victor in the secretary of state race moves into the post that will be vacated by Terri Lynn Land, who also ran up against term limits.
