The Michigan Democratic Convention finished up historically, Sunday, as three women were nominated for three Michigan Supreme Court seats that are up-for-grabs in November.

Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Connie Marie Kelley, Oakland County District Court Judge Shelia Johnson and University of Michigan Law School Dean of Clinical Affairs all accepted the nomination to face the three Republican nominees that were chosen on Saturday.

"This is the first time ever that three women have been nominated to be candidates for the Michigan Supreme Court," said Kelley.

Michigan Democratic Party Chair, Mark Brewer, described his party as energized and united as the Democrats look to regain the State House majority on election day.

"People are very angry about the priorities of Lansing," said Brewer. "We're going to talk about the Republican record of slashing public education in the state by one billion dollars, raising taxes on seniors and giving tax cuts to corporations and special interests in the state who haven't produced a single job."

The Democratic convention was held at the Lansing Center in Lansing. The Republican convention, in Grand Rapids.
