In the race for state Attorney General, Michigan voters will get to choose between a Democrat, a Republican…and a candidate without a party. Capital correspondent Cheyna Roth reports the Board of State Canvassers officially put Christopher Graveline on the November ballot.

Christopher Graveline only had about half the number of signatures he needed to be on the ballot. So he sued the state – and he won. The underlying issue about the state’s requirements for independent candidates is still being fought out in court. But Graveline will be on the ticket.

Graveline says he wants to give voters a more moderate option for the office.

“The way the Attorney General’s office throughout the United States are becoming offices, I’m going to make the argument to the Michigan people it should be a nonpartisan office.” Graveline said.

Graveline will run against Republican Speaker of the House Tom Leonard and Democratic civil rights attorney Dana Nessel.

Before becoming the newest Capitol reporter for Michigan Public Radio Network, Cheyna Roth was an attorney. She spent her days fighting it out in court as an assistant prosecuting attorney for Ionia County.
