DETROIT (AP) - Former state Appeals Court judge Bill Schuette and Oakland County Clerk Ruth Johnson helped pull off a Republican sweep for the top state offices by winning election to Michigan attorney general and secretary of state.

Republican-nominated Wayne County Judge Mary Beth Kelly and incumbent Justice Robert Young Jr. beat three other candidates for two open seats on the state Supreme Court.

With 85 percent of precincts reporting just after midnight Wednesday, Schuette had 54 percent of the vote to Democratic Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton's 42 percent. Schuette succeeds two-term Republican Mike Cox, who couldn't run again because of Michigan's term limits law.
