EAST LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — Michigan Democrats held the second day of their nominating convention in East Lansing Sunday.
Like Republicans the day before, Democrats gathered to decide who from their party will be on the November general election ballot in races for university boards, the state Board of Education and the state Supreme Court. Unlike the GOP, nominees for the more high-profile positions of attorney general and secretary of state had already been decided. The convention formalized those nominations heading into the general election.
The final day of the convention was also about getting ready to spend the upcoming months urging voters to turn out on Nov. 6. U.S. Sen. Gary Peters, D-Bloomfield Township, made an energetic endorsement of the party's ticket and chances.
"It is a team that will transform Michigan, it is a team that will show the true Democratic vision for this great state and we will make sure that they win in November," Peters said.
Democratic candidate for governor Gretchen Whitmer, a former state senator, said the race "will not be easy."
