WASHINGTON, D.C., November 4, 2020 – With the votes tallied, Michigan voters have elected Elizabeth Welch and Bridget McCormack to serve on the Michigan Supreme Court. Alliance for Justice Action Campaign had endorsed these fair-minded candidates and supported them through a five-figure ad buy.

“Michiganders have voted for justice, electing Elizabeth Welch and Bridget McCormack to the state’s Supreme Court. They recognized that our state supreme courts are essential to enforce our laws and protect our rights and created a majority that will put people first, not the wealthy and powerful. Alliance for Justice Action Campaign was proud to support the election of Welch and McCormack. They have proven their commitment to advancing our rights and protections in critical areas that matter to Michiganders like health care, the environment, and education. All states should ensure their supreme court will uphold the rule of law and not just follow a partisan agenda.”
