Rep. Gary Peters has won a key endorsement in his race against Rep. Hansen Clarke for Michigan’s 14th district. Members of the United Auto Workers have decided to back Peters in the Member-vs.-Member Democratic primary.

“As a Member of Congress, Gary Peters has shown tremendous leadership and courage by leading the fight for the automotive industry, including his work to secure the auto loans which saved over a million American automotive jobs,” said Chuck Hall, director of UAW Region 1.

The man who wins the Democratic nomination will almost assuredly win the seat in November. The two Members will face each other because Michigan lost a seat in reapportionment.

Roll Call rates this race as Safe Democratic.
