Supporters of President Donald Trump gathered in Detroit to protest the election in November 2020.

This week, the primary elections took place, and our readers were interested in Michigan's results.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, a Michigan gubernatorial candidate who participated in the Jan. 6 riot in Washington D.C. did not accept defeat to winner Tudor Dixon easily, and many of our readers were interested in that story.

And our readers were still very interested in the Michigan Republican director who said they believed that former President Donald Trump should be charged for election lies.

All of that and a little more. Here are the top stories of the week:

10. "Lawsuit seeks to boot Rep. Matt Maddock from Michigan ballot for trying to overturn election"
