Sander Levin Picks Sides in Primary #MI14
Posted at 12:29 p.m. on May 22, 2013
Rep. Sander M. Levin endorsed state House Democratic Floor Leader Rudy Hobbs on Wednesday in the Democratic primary for Michigan’s 14th District.
“When elected to the U.S. House, Rudy will be a powerful advocate and a tireless fighter for the residents throughout the 14th District in Detroit and Oakland County,” Levin said in a press release. “I look forward to actively supporting his campaign.”
Hobbs, who announced his campaign last week, is one of a number of Democrats mentioned in a recent CQ Roll Call outlook of this open-seat race. Former Rep. Hansen Clarke is expected to run again in this district, which includes parts of downtown Detroit and its suburbs.
This is a race to replace Rep. Gary Peters, who is running for Senate in 2014.
Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call rates this race as Safe Democratic.
