CALUMET — The constituents of the 110th house district chose to retain Democratic incumbent Scott Dianda in Tuesday’s election.

Dianda released a statement in regards to his re-election to his third and final term in the state house.

“From Copper Harbor to Crystal Falls and Ironwood to Ishpeming Township, I am humbled by the people of the 110th house district for continuing to put their faith in me as their representative,” Dianda said. “When I was first elected in 2012, I went down to Lansing to fight for good-paying jobs, deliver a good education to our children, and secure affordable energy rates for families and small businesses. I look forward to continuing that fight in Lansing to build a stronger and more prosperous U.P. that works for everyone.”

Dianda received 23,526 votes. His opponent, Republican Greg Markkanen, received 14,015 votes.
