Third consecutive
Dingell to serve in
Daily StaffReporters
The Dingell dynasty will con-
tinue. In the 12th U.S. House
District, the Detroit Free Press
has called the race for Debbie
Dingell, wife of current U.S.
House Rep. John Dingell (D).
She is the third Dingell to hold
a Michigan Congressional seat,
following current. Rep. John
Dingell and his father, John
Dingell, Sr.
In a victory speech at the state
Democrat watch party Tuesday
night in Detroit, Dingell thanked
her staff, family and campaign,
and said there were two people
she wanted to thank specifically
by name: her husband, outgoing

Rep. Dingell, and outgoing U.S
Senator Carl Levin.
"These Democrats, two giants
of men...have served this state
a very very long time," she said.
"And what we have to remember
is that they've been the voice of
Michigan's values, of respecting
working men and women and
standing firm for what's right."
Dingell faced off against
Republican candidate Terry
Bowman, a Ford employee and
key player in the 2012 right-
to-work battle in the state. She
made higher education, namely
reducing student debt, a key
focus, hosting higher educa-
tion roundtables at universities
across the state to discuss issues
facing students and universities.
Dingell, who serves as a trust-
ee at Wayne State University
recently voted against a tuition
increase at that institution.
"I've been on the Wayne State
board for eight years," Dingell
said in a June interview with

The Michigan Daily. "Every sin-
gle year, it seems like it's becom-
ing more challenging and more
difficult and harder to afford
a higher education. And every
single day, I am meeting young
people who are graduating with
staggering debt."
A founder of the National
Women's Health Resource
Center, Dingell also champi-
oned affordable health care and
investing in health research that
includes women, and advocated
for policies that extend rights to
same-sex couples.
"If two people love each other,
why should we keep them from
being with each other?" Ding-
ell said in an October interview
with The Michigan Daily.
In her victory speech Tues-
day night, Dingell touched on all
those areas, also emphasizing
job creation in the state.
"We're going to keep fighting
ahead for the values we all care
about- to protect manufactur-
ing, that if you are sick you don't
worry about whether you need
to go to a doctor," she said. "And
that our children, 25 percent of
our population and 100 percent
of our future, they deserve qual-
ity, affordable education. That's
what I'm fighting for. That's
what I stand here for tonight."
In a October interview with
the Daily, she said the 2008
financial crash heavily impacted
the job market, which, unlike
the auto industry, has not recov-
ered. Dingell has highlighted the
importance of job creation espe-
cially for young college gradu-
ates and those forced into early
In an October interview with
The Michigan Daily, Bowman
emphasized his distance from
Washington as one benefit of
him taking the congressional
"It's no fault of the individual,
but I think that if you're in Con-
gress for a long time you com-
pletely lose the ability to connect
with what goes on each and
every day," he said.

Republicans has attempted to protect the
state's ban on same-sex mar-
maintain hold in riage and its ban on affirmative
executive office action.

Michigan House
of Representatives
State representative Jeff
Irwin (D-Ann Arbor) has won
reelection for a third term,
defeating Republican challeng-
er John Spisak.
Irwin has pushed for greater
state involvement in all levels
of education and has argued
that improving the state's edu-
cational institutions can be a
means of economic growth. In
April 2013, Irwin proposed a
bill to extend in-state tuition
equality to undocumented
students, a move hailed by on-
campus student groups.
"I think it's good state pol-
icy to try to keep those people
here in Michigan, giving them
opportunity to contribute to
our economy and communi-
ties," Irwin said in a 2013 inter-
view with the Daily.
He has also been an advo-
cate for improved environ-
mental protections, and
supports increased investment
in infrastructure to aid eco-
nomic recovery.
Spisak, an Ann Arbor resi-
dent, is a stay-at-home father
who previously owned small
businesses. He prioritized
investing in roads, bridges and
other infrastructure. He also

"I will continue to serve as
a voice for the constitution,
because there are cops and
firefighters who worked hard
in a tough city whose pensions
were at risk," Schuette said in a
speech at the Renaissance Cen-
ter Tuesday night.
"I am an optimist at the core,
and this election is all about
tomorrows," Schuette said. "I
am confident Michigan's best
tomorrows are just ahead. "
Schuette, who outspent Tot-
ten by a near six-to-one margin
during the campaign, has said
he would like to be a "voice for
victims" of all crimes in his
second term.
Formerly a federal pros-
ecutor, Totten emphasized his
desire to protect Michigan citi-
zens from economic crime. He
also aimed to better support
women's and students' rights,
two areas in which he said
Schuette failed.

Michigan State Senate
State Sen. Rebekah Warren
(D-Ann Arbor) won her second
term over Republican challeng-
er Terry Linden.
Warren has served Ann
Arbor as a state senator since
2011. Previously, Warren
served in the Michigan House
of Representatives from 2007
to 2010.
In her tenure, Warren has
focused on women's rights and
environmental protection. In
September, she co-introduced
legislation to require all health
insurance companies to pro-
vide the option to purchase
abortion service coverage. She
has also sponsored legislation
to help sexual assault survi-
vors, gender pay equity and
works to extend workplace
family medical leave.
Warren is invested in
improving the environment. In
