Wagner is Republican nominee for 109th District rep


MARQUETTE — The winner of Tuesday’s Republican primary election in Marquette for the 109th District state representative is Melody Wagner, who had a total of 1,839 votes. Coming in with 1,765 votes was contender Matthew Goss.

Wagner was declared the overall winner in the four-county race, according to preliminary results posted by The Associated Press.

“I want to thank the District 109 voters for believing in me and getting out the vote. A special thank you to our committed, patient poll workers and our township and county clerks’ offices for their dedication completing the count for the 2020 state primary,” Wagner said in an email.

In the general election on Nov. 3, Wagner will face off against incumbent Sara Cambensy, D-Marquette, who ran unopposed Tuesday.

The Nov. 3 winner will serve a two-year term in the seat which represents Marquette, Alger, Luce and Schoolcraft counties.

“I am honored and thankful to be the 2020 Republican candidate for state representative in the 2020 general election. My work will continue the next three months to secure a ‘conservative victory,’ a feat unobtained since the 1950s,” Wagner said.
