McBroom prevails in 38th GOP primary

The Republican nomination for the 38th seat in the Michigan Senate is Ed McBroom’s, after a 16,264-7,197 vote in Tuesday’s primary election.

“I’m very thankful to the folks for being willing to trust me and support my campaign,” McBroom said Wednesday morning.

McBroom says his campaign won’t change now. He’ll continue visiting people across the district to talk about government transparency, fixing auto insurance costs and more flexibility in school curriculum.

“I’ve been running with an eye on November from the beginning,” he said.

McBroom defeated Mike Carey in Tuesday’s primary. Carey also thanked his supporters in a statement Wednesday night.

“If you’re not failing, you’re not trying. I have no regrets, loved the journey, and am fully confident in God’s path for my life,” Carey said in the statement.

Scott Dianda ran unopposed for the Democratic nomination.

“As state senator, I look forward to fighting for jobs that pay a living wage, so people can feed their families, put new tires on their cars and new roofs on their houses,” Dianda said in a Tuesday press release.
