State representative Sara Cambensy (D-Marquette) was re-elected to the Michigan House on Tuesday, beating Republican Melody Wagner, 57-percent to 42-percent.
“I’d like to thank all the volunteers and supporters who helped me cross the finish line tonight,” Cambensy said. “I’m humbled by the support of my donors and the many volunteers that took time to knock doors and make calls on behalf of my race and many others. I understand that I work for everyone in the 109th district, not just the voters who elected me, and I will continue to fight for my constituents and all the people of the Upper Peninsula.”
