Michigan voters passed a ban on affirmative action. Remember that it was a University of Michigan case that led the Supreme Court to uphold the use of race as a criterion in college admissions a couple of years ago. The losing side brought in Ward Connerly, who has sponsored similar initiatives elsewhere.
I was told the measure on establishing a hunting season for mourning doves would be a big deal. It lost by a 2 to 1 margin.
Granholm won a second term, of course, but the Republican attorney general and secretary of state each won reelection.
Democrats won the House but fell short in the Senate. Democrats gained two seats but Republicans end up with a 20-18 majority.
I wrote about two of the state Senate races. Democratic scion Andy Levin, son of Congressman Sander Levin and nephew of U.S. Senator Carl Levin, won in a traditionally Republican district in suburban Detroit. Republican Senator Jerry Van Woerkem held onto his Muskegon-based seat.
