STATE HOUSE-FILING DEADLINE
(2008-05-14)
(wgvu) - TERM LIMITS WILL TRIGGER MAJOR TURNOVER IN
THE STATE HOUSE IN THE NOVEMBER ELECTION.
FORTY-FOUR OF THE CHAMBER'S 110 SEATS WILL BE OPEN BECAUSE THE
INCUMBENT LAWMAKERS AREN'T ALLOWED TO RUN AGAIN.
ONE MORE SEAT WILL BE OPEN BECAUSE AN INCUMBENT ELIGIBLE FOR
RE-ELECTION ISN'T RUNNING.
DOZENS OF NEWCOMERS REGISTERED TO RUN FOR THE OPEN SEATS BEFORE
THE FILING DEADLINE. THAT SETS THE STAGE FOR CROWDED AUGUST
PRIMARIES IN SOME DISTRICTS.
MICHIGAN LAW LIMITS STATE HOUSE MEMBERS TO THREE TERMS OF TWO
YEARS EACH.
DEMOCRATS HOLD A 58-52 EDGE OVER REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE AND
COULD BE HELPED BY THE UPCOMING TURNOVER BECAUSE MORE SEATS NOW
HELD BY REPUBLICANS WILL BE VACATED.
