Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has survived a strong challenge to win the Democratic primary.

With 83% of precincts reporting, Worthy has garnered 143,398 votes to challenger Victoria Burton-Harris’ 86,722.

Worthy faces no Republican opponent in November’s general election

Meanwhile, Rep. Rashida Tlaib has defeated Detroit City Council member Brenda Jones to win the Democratic nomination in the 13th Congressional district.

With 87% of the precincts reporting, Tlaib has 61,090 votes to Jones' 31,487.

Tlaib will face the winner of a tight three way race in the Republican primary in November. But she will be favored to win re-election in the heavily Democratic congressional district.
