Westland State Senator Heads Back to Lansing After 13th District Loss

August 8th, 2012

Glenn Anderson finished second to 24 term incumbent John Conyers in Tuesday’s Democratic primary for the newly drawn 13th Congressional District. The boomerang shaped district tracks from Romulus up to northwest Detroit through Highland Park and areas of the Detroit’s eastside before winding up in Ecorse. Anderson says the map made getting in touch with the voters a challenge.

“There’s no doubt about it because of vast geography in the district. And I was very pleased and very thankful for all the support that I got very early on. There’s still no other candidate, including John Conyers, that received as many endorsements as I did.”

Anderson says he ran on improving public safety, jobs and government response. The State Senator heads back to Lansing to finish out his second term.

As for another run at Congress from the 13th district in 2014? Anderson says that’s yet to be determined.
