Based on reported results for the Michigan House District 11 race, 71 Republic can safely announce that Lena Epstein will become the Republican nominee for the general election. At 12:49 AM EST, Epstein garnered 30% of the vote with 74% of precincts reporting in. She received no national endorsements, but raised the most funds in the primary election.

The incumbent representative is Republican Dave Trott. The district, however, was won by Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential Election by 4.4%. With major Democratic figures like Hillary Clinton endorsing candidates for their primaries, and no major Republicans endorsing candidates in their respective primary, it is possible that Democrats could win this toss-up of a primary in the general election.
