Michigan holds a special election to fill the vacant State Senate seat, 27th district, on May 7. Four parties entered the race. The nominees are: Democratic Jim Ananich; Republican Robert Daunt; Green Bobby Jones; Libertarian Robert Nicholls. The district is centered on Flint. Last time this race was up, in November 2010, the Democratic Party nominee had defeated the Republican and Libertarian nominees. Thanks to Michael for this news. UPDATE: the original post has been amended to include Nicholls. Thanks to the anonymous commenter who caught the error.
