In the most watched election of the convention, former State Rep. Tom McMillin and conservative activist and teacher Nikki Snyder won the nominations for State Board of Education.
According to Chad Livengood of the Detroit News:
"Only the races for the Wayne State board and the State Board of Education were contested.
For Wayne State University’s two open seats, Republicans nominated Troy plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Busuito and Kim Shmina, a nurser practitioner from Fair Haven and former Wayne State nursing instructor. Busuito lost a 2014 race for the Wayne State board by 4,962 votes..
