Elections for the office of Michigan House of Representatives will take place in 2014. A primary election was held on August 5, 2014, and a general election will take place on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was April 22, 2014. Vanessa Guerra defeated Norman Braddock in the Democratic primary. Jordan Haskins was unopposed in the Republican primary, but suspended his campaign almost a month prior following reports of his criminal history. Haskins returned to campaigning shortly after the primary, citing the passage of the withdrawal deadline and Guerra's primary victory. Guerra faces Haskins in the general election.[2][3][1][4]

Controversies

Criminal record

Until October 23, 2014, Haskins is on parole after serving time on charges of malicious destruction of property, breaking and entering, and unlawful use of a motor vehicle. The charges stemmed from two 2010 break-ins at the Saginaw County Mosquito Control, where he disconnected spark plugs on several vehicles in order to fulfill a fetish known as "cranking," where one derives sexual pleasure from hearing an engine idling, and similar incidents at a city lot and a private business in Saginaw. Haskins told The Saginaw News that his mental and emotional states were "messed-up" at the time, which he called "a whole phase... where I was young and stupid," and that his prison stint helped him to mature.[5]

Haskins announced on July 10, 2014, that he would suspend his campaign, citing the alleged use of his criminal record against other candidates. Because the deadline to withdraw already passed, he remained a candidate in the Republican primary.[6] Two days after the primary, Haskins announced that he would return to campaigning due to Vanessa Guerra winning the Democratic primary as well as the inability to formally remove his name from the ballot.[2]
