General Election Results

For the state legislative races, the “Blue Wave” that would have been necessary for Democrats to win majorities in the State House and State Senate failed to materialize.  The success at the top of the ticket did not translate to the huge gains they would have needed to overcome large Republican majorities in both chambers of the Michigan Legislature.  The Democrats picked up five seats in the State House and five seats in the State Senate to bring the partisan totals for next year to 58-52 GOP in the House and 22-16 GOP in the Senate.  That likely means that the next Speaker of the Michigan House will be Lee Chatfield (R-Levering), and the next Senate Majority Leader will be Mike Shirkey (R-Clark Lake). 

Below is a report of the Governor’s race, Lieutenant Governor’s race, Michigan Congressional races, and the Michigan legislature.

Bodkin Named Partner at Capitol Services

Capitol Services, Inc. is pleased to announce that Benjamin Bodkin has been named the firm’s newest partner.  Mr. Bodkin joins Ellen Hoekstra, Todd Tennis, Noah Smith, Jean Doss and Cara Marie Dobie as partners in the lobbying and governmental consulting company which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

Bodkin came to Capitol Services in 2014 after serving as the Director of Governmental Affairs at the Michigan Association of Counties.  Prior to that, Ben served as the Legislative Director for former State Senator Cameron S. Brown, and former State Representative James “Mick” Middaugh.  In addition to providing a wealth of experience to Capitol Services clients on the workings of state government, Ben also has particular expertise in areas of local government, mental health and law enforcement.

“It’s wonderful to have Ben as part of our leadership team,” said CSI President Todd Tennis.  “His nearly two decades of work in Lansing’s legislative arena will be a key asset to our clients for years to come.”
