LANSING, Mich. (AP) - In the race for Michigan Supreme Court, trial lawyers and unions are financially supporting Democrats while business groups are backing the Republican nominees.

The Michigan Campaign Finance Network looked at donations for Republicans Robert Young Jr. and Mary Beth Kelly and Democrats Alton Davis and Denise Langford Morris.

The Michigan Education Association has given a total of $50,000 to the Morris and Davis campaigns. The lawyers group the Michigan Association for Justice political-action committee has given $34,000 to Davis.

Young's campaign has received $140,000 from groups for bankers, hospitals, Realtors, farmers and doctors.

Kelly's campaign has received at least $34,000 from members of the DeVos family, prominent Republicans in Grand Rapids.
