State election officials certify Michigan primary results

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- State officials have certified the results from Michigan's August primary election.

The Board of State Canvassers certified the Aug. 3 election results on Monday. The certifications include the results of several Michigan's U.S. House primaries, including a relatively narrow victory in the 2nd District for Bill Huizenga in the Republican race over Jay Riemersma and five others.

Huizenga won by 663 votes and faces Democrat Fred Johnson in the November election for the western Michigan congressional seat.

Election officials earlier had certified a narrow victory for Dan Benishek in the Republican primary for the 1st Congressional District in northern Michigan. Benishek faces Democrat Gary McDowell in November.
