Peterson Wins Democratic Primary In The 54th State House District

Aug 8, 2018

Ronnie Peterson, Winner of Democratic Primary in Michigan's 54th District State House District

Incumbent Ronnie Peterson found himself on a rather crowded ballot in the democratic race for the 54th district state house seat. Peterson is finishing up his first term in office now, and faced a challenge from three other candidates.

Peterson received nearly 57-percent of the vote to fend off Roderick Casey, Isaac L. London II and William Riney. Peterson will run-off against Republican Colton A. Campbell in November. Campbell defeated  Ora Wright in Tuesday’s primary.
