Rep. John Conyers, who arrived in Congress in 1965, has a serious ballot issue regarding his re-election. Will he be on the ballot? Will he be a write in? He would be the most senior member of Congress next year if he is re-elected.
Detroit Free Press: “An initial review of petitions filed by U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Detroit, show that he has enough valid signatures to qualify for the Aug. 5 primary ballot. But the Wayne County Clerk’s Office said Wednesday that he’s not out of the woods yet.
Of the 2,000 signatures turned in by Conyers, 1,193 are from valid registered voters in the 13th congressional district — only 1,000 valid signatures are required. But there’s still a challenge from Conyers’ opponent, the Rev. Horace Sheffield, a Detroit Democrat, that has to be sorted out.” read entire here
