Primary Election Results Thread - Schauer Wins
I'm finally home for the results. I'll be updating the results as I get them:
Michigan's 7th District - Democratic Party
342 of 342 Precincts Reporting (100%)
Sharon Renier - 9,034 - 34%
Mark Schauer - 17,268 - 66%
Michigan Secretary of State
Battle Creek Enquirer
Lansing State Journal
UPDATE: For county-by-county results:
Branch County (.xls file) (Renier 310, Schauer 242; Walberg 4,909)
Calhoun County (Renier 1,131, Schauer 6,538; Walberg 6,023)
Eaton County (Renier 1,340, Schauer 1,852; Walberg 6,331)
Hillsdale County (Renier 416, Schauer 325; Walberg 4,550)
UPDATE II: For those curious, in the 2006 primary, the total Democratic vote was 19,753. Renier won with 10,402.
UPDATE III: As counties finish counting, they're updating the Michigan Secretary of State page with totals. I'm adding in final results in each county, with the county winner in italics.
UPDATE IV: The Schauer campaign claims victory:
SCHAUER WINS DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY, VOWS TO FIGHT FOR MICHIGAN JOBSUPDATE V: From the Jackson Citizen Patriot, Schauer and Renier react:
"This is just one step toward winning this seat back," Schauer said. "We need to take this seat back from someone who is extremely out of touch with this district and with the needs of our state."and
Renier, of Munith, said her apparent defeat is a loss for the people of Michigan.I understand that Sharon is frustrated, and I have nothing but respect for her and for the passion she brought to the race in 2004, 2006, and this year. I only hope that she eventually realizes that Senator Schauer is a solid progressive, a strong candidate, and a much better alternative than Tim Walberg.
I'm done for the night. Democrats have a nominee.
Interesting how Schauer is losing in Branch and Hillsdale, and the margins look tight in Eaton and Lenawee... Though, he did win in a blowout in Calhoun... Looks like he's having issues outside of his Calhoun base... Plus under 60 percent... How many hundreds of thousands of dollars has he spent and she has no money...
Hey. now that Schauer is the winner, I'd like to know where he stands on univesal SINGLE PAYER health care for all!Post a Comment
Also, will he be a corporate Dem? He may be more realistic than Renier; however, I hope that realism doesn't put him in the pockets of the lobbyists.
