59th District State Rep. Steve Carra (R-Three Rivers) was one of 11 Michigan lawmakers who asked Vice President Mike Pence to delay certifying the election prior to Wednesday’s insurgency at the U.S. Capitol.
As of 10:59 p.m. Tuesday night, with just under 72 percent of St. Joseph County precincts reporting, Republican Steve Carra led Democrat Amy East for the seat of 59th District Representative in the Michigan Legislature by a margin of approximately two to one. At that time, Carra carried 12,200 votes in the county to East’s 6,775. He also held a significant lead in Cass County. Speaking from St. Joseph County Republican Party Headquarters in Three Rivers around 11 p.m., Carra said his campaign was declaring victory. Results are also in for several other contested, local races.
Layne Deuel of Three Rivers writes,
“When looking to vote for one of the three candidates (contending for 59th District State Representative) I ask that you disregard the ‘D’ and ‘R’ next to their names but investigate their policies and how they plan on impacting the 59th for years to come.”
