Whitmer, Green to battle for Senate seat
GOP candidate prevails with one-vote lead

Lansing State Journal
State Rep. Gretchen Whitmer sprinted past her Democratic rivals Tuesday in a special state Senate primary, while attorney Vincent Green appeared to eke out a one-vote win on the Republican side.
The results are unofficial. If Green's victory over John Findlay of Alaiedon Township holds up, he and Whitmer will square off in a special general election on March 14.
Green (depending on recount) has a tough go since Whitmer is a Blue Cross heir and has gazillions. Still, in a special election anything can happen. Good luck to Green.
