ABC12's General Election wrap-up

MICHIGAN (WJRT) -

(11/07/12) - Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow was declared the victor in Tuesday night's election.

The latest results show Stabenow won with 58 percent of the vote. Her contender, Republican Pete Hoekstra, finished with 38 percent.

"We have been through so much in our state and we know it," Sen. Stabenow said. "A lot of hard work and a lot of sacrifice and we're coming back. Michigan is coming back.

"We have a great team here in Michigan. We were hoping that we could take that same philosophy and implement it in Washington D.C. You still have great representatives in the House of Representatives," Hoekstra said.

Here are the latest results from a list of other hot button races in Mid-Michigan:

The Genesee County Health Care Millage was passed with 64 percent of the vote.

Flint's marijuana proposal passed with 57 percent of the voters saying 'yes.'

Democrat John Miller has been declared the winner in the race for Bay County Sheriff. He won 68 percent of the vote.

His challenger, Joshua Novak, finished with 32 percent of the vote.

It also looks like Flint taxpayers don't mind paying more for police and fire protection. With 90 percent of precincts reporting, 59 percent of voters voted 'yes' on Flint's public safety millage. That number is not final, with some absentee ballots still left to be counted.

Democrat Dan Kildee easily beat Republican Jim Slezak with 64 percent of the vote in the 5th District Congressional race.

Lastly, all six statewide proposals were defeated. For more on those proposals, click HERE.
