Viviano and Zahra will run for Supreme Court in fall

LANSING (AP) — Two Michigan Supreme Court justices want voters to keep them in office.

Brian Zahra and David Viviano say they’ll run in the fall election. As incumbents, they can automatically get on the ballot, but they’ll also seek a nomination from the state Republican Party.

Both justices were appointed to the Supreme Court by Gov. Rick Snyder, a Republican. Zahra is seeking a full eight-year term, while Viviano is running for the two years remaining in the term of Diane Hathaway.

Hathaway quit the court a year ago because of a criminal case involving a short sale on her Detroit-area home.

Justices nominated by Republicans or appointed by Snyder have a 5-2 edge on the Supreme Court. There will be three court seats on the fall ballot.
