Chutich wins full term on Supreme Court

Associate Justice Margaret Chutich has won election to a full term on the Minnesota Supreme Court.

Chutich won 56 percent of the vote Tuesday to defeat family law attorney Michelle MacDonald, who won 44 percent in the officially nonpartisan race.

Chutich was appointed by Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton in 2016. She was the first openly gay justice on the state’s highest court and faced voters for the first time this year.

The conservative MacDonald was making a third run for the high court despite a past that included having her law license suspended for professional misconduct allegations. She remains on probation.

Supreme Court justices re-elected unopposed were Chief Justice Lorie Gildea, Justice Barry Anderson and Justice Anne McKeig.
