GOP Loses Seats But Maintains Control of State House

By  | 

Democrats have narrowed the gap with the Republican majority that took over the Michigan House just two years ago. But by just how much remains unclear with several races outstanding.
All 110 seats in the chamber were on the ballot Tuesday. Republicans held a 64-46 edge going into the election, meaning Democrats needed to net 10 seats to retake control.
They'd picked up at least half that many by early Wednesday, but many races still were pending. Some of the undecided races are too close to call, while results in others have been delayed by vote reporting issues.
Among Republicans who held their seats was House Speaker Jase Bolger. Bolger won a tight race amid criticisms surrounding his involvement in a former Democratic representative's decision to change parties.
