DETROIT (AP) — Michigan Democrats have endorsed Dana Nessel in a hotly contested race to be the party’s state attorney general candidate.

Thousands of delegates made their choice Sunday at a convention in Detroit.

Nessel — a former assistant prosecutor in Wayne County who now is a private attorney — defeated Pat Miles, a former U.S. attorney for western Michigan. She is expected to be formally nominated at a convention in August, but the victory will give her a head start preparing for November’s general election.
