Rick Snyder wins GOP primary for Mich. governor

DETROIT (AP) - Former computer executive Rick Snyder has defeated four opponents to capture the Republican nomination for Michigan governor. Snyder will face Democrat Virg Bernero in the fall election. Bernero has been the mayor of the state capital of Lansing since 2006. Current Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm can't run again because of term limits. The 51-year-old Snyder introduced himself to voters by airing TV ads describing himself as "one tough nerd." He regularly skipped televised debates with other Republicans and instead held public forums. Snyder was an executive at Gateway Inc. during the 1990s before turning to private investment. Some voters said they liked his lack of political experience. Bernero defeated Michigan House Speaker Andy Dillon in the Democratic race.

HOUSE-KILPATRICK
Rep. Kilpatrick of Detroit loses in Dem. primary

DETROIT (AP) - There will be no eighth term in Congress for Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick. The Detroit Democrat was beaten in Tuesday's primary by state Sen. Hansen Clarke of Detroit. Kilpatrick is the sixth incumbent lawmaker, and the fourth from the House, to lose this year. The mother of imprisoned ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick had overcome her son's legal entanglements two years ago in a tight primary win. The 65-year-old tried this time around to sell voters on her standing as a House Appropriations Committee member and provider for the heavily Democratic 13th District. But her son's escalating troubles substantially weakened her standing among voters in the district that includes economically ravaged Detroit and several eastern and southern suburbs.

US HOUSE-1ST DISTRICT
Both sides claim victory in 1st District GOP race

DETROIT (AP) - Both Crystal Falls physician Dan Benishek and state Sen. Jason Allen of Alanson are claiming victory in the ultra-tight race for the Republican nomination in the 1st Congressional District. With 100 percent of precincts reporting early Wednesday, The Associated Press' unofficial vote count had Benishek ahead by just 12 votes. The count differed from figures collected by Allen's campaign and was being double-checked. An earlier AP count had the margin at 102 votes, but a transposition error was found and reduced the difference to 12. It isn't clear if either will request a re-count. State law allows for re-counts in congressional races as long as a candidate asks for one. The winner will face Democratic state Rep. Gary McDowell of Rudyard in November to succeed Bart Stupak, an 18-year congressman who decided to retire.

US HOUSE-3RD DISTRICT
State Rep. Amash wins 3rd District GOP primary

DETROIT (AP) - State Rep. Justin Amash  has won the Republican congressional primary in Michigan's 3rd District, which opened up this year with the retirement of veteran U.S. Rep. Vernon Ehlers. Amash is from Kent County's Cascade Township and boasts of having never missed a vote and not voting for tax increases. He turned 30 a few months ago and goes online to explain votes he's taken during his first term in the Legislature. He defeated former Kent County Commissioner Steve Heacock and three others who were in the race. Amash will go up against Grand Rapids attorney Pat Miles in the general election in the Republican-leaning district.

US HOUSE-7TH DISTRICT
Walberg win sets up rematch with Rep. Schauer

DETROIT (AP) - Former U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg of Tipton has won the Republican primary in the south-central Michigan 7th District, setting up a rematch with the man who ousted him from Congress two years ago. Walberg defeated lawyer and Iraq war veteran Brian Rooney of Dexter. The primary win Tuesday means Walberg will face off in November against Democrat Mark Schauer. In 2008, Schauer of Battle Creek beat the first-term Walberg by about 7,500 votes. Republicans have been eyeing Schauer ever since he won in the GOP-leaning district. It covers an area stretching from Eaton County just west of Lansing south through Battle Creek, Jackson, Hillsdale and Adrian.

US HOUSE-9TH DISTRICT
Raczkowski beats 3 in 9th District GOP primary

DETROIT (AP) - Former state lawmaker and Army Reserve officer Rocky Raczkowski of Farmington Hills is the winner in the 9th District Republican congressional primary. He beat three others on Tuesday and earned a spot in November's general election against first-term Democratic incumbent Gary Peters. Raczkowski defeated Farmington Hills businessman Paul Welday, beauty consultant Anna Janek of Oakland County's West Bloomfield Township and former circuit court judge Richard Kuhn of Waterford. The 9th is a GOP-leaning district, and many in the party believe Peters could be vulnerable. Peters of Oakland County's Bloomfield Township ran unopposed in Tuesday's Democratic primary.

US HOUSE-14TH DISTRICT
Ukrainec wins GOP primary; US Rep. Conyers awaits

DETROIT (AP) - Riverview Community Schools teacher Don Ukrainec has won the Republican congressional primary in the 14th District and will take on longtime Democratic Rep. John Conyers in November. With 100 percent of precincts reporting early Wednesday, the 49-year-old Ukrainec picked up 55.4 percent of the vote to 44.6 percent for fellow Trenton resident Pauline Montie, a small business owner. Conyers is seeking a 24th term in Congress. The 81-year-old has been a member of the U.S. House since 1965 and is chairman of the powerful House Judiciary Committee. His wife, Monica, is expected in September to start a 37-month federal prison sentence for corruption after pleading guilty last year to a bribery scheme involving her vote in favor of a sludge-hauling contract.
