Nesbitt Wins Senate Primary, LaSata Goes Down

Following Tuesday’s primaries, Republican state Senator Aric Nesbitt will head into November’s general election facing Democrat Kim Jorgensen Gane after defeating two challengers. Nesbitt says he’s “honored for the opportunity to work side-by-side with Tudor Dixon and Republican candidates up-and-down the ticket to earn big wins in November. Meanwhile farther to the south in the 17th District, Jonathan Lindsey of Bronson beat state Senator Kim LaSata in the Republican primary. Lindsey will face Democrat Scott Rex in November. The 17th District covers the southern half of Berrien County and extends east through Cass, St. Joseph, and Branch counties, also including part of Hillsdale, Jackson and Calhoun counties.
