Michigan: “Clement criticized for redistricting decision, still earns Supreme Court nomination”

M Live:

Supreme Court Justices Beth Clement and Kurtis Wilder were formally nominated by the Michigan Republican Party to run for reelection, despite organized opposition to Clement’s record on the state’s highest court.

Both Wilder and Clement were appointed by Gov. Rick Snyder last year, Wilder in May 2017 and Clement in November 2017, but have to run for election this year to serve a full term.

Wilder’s nomination for the position was uncontroversial, but some conservatives at the Michigan Republican Party state convention Saturday were not impressed by Clement’s vote in the recent redistricting case that came before the court.
