Brinks is running in the 2012 election for Michigan House of Representatives District 76. She had to receive a minimum of 1000 votes in the primary on August 7 to get on the general election ballot in November, and she far surpassed that number, amassing more than 2,500.[2] The general election takes place on November 6, 2012.[1]

Schmidt and Speaker of the House Jase Bolger became engulfed by controversy in July 2012 as a result of Schimdt's decision to become a Republican. Brinks has stated of her recruitment, "I know this is going to be a tremendous challenge. I'm not a politician. I've never run for office before. All I can do is pledge to you that I will do all I possibly can to win this race. I promise that I will restore honesty and integrity to this seat and I will represent you in the way that you expect and deserve."[1]

Personal

Brinks is a married mother of three.[1]
