Mike Duggan Launches Write-In Campaign to be Mayor of Detroit

Mike Duggan

Last week, former Wayne County Prosecutor and Detroit Medical Center C-E-O Mike Duggan was among the leading candidates in Detroit’s mayoral race. But the Michigan Court of Appeals recently upheld a circuit court ruling that states Duggan’s name be removed from the August primary ballot because he didn’t meet residency requirements when he filed petitions.

In turn, Duggan dropped out of the race. But that was last week.

Today Duggan told WDET's Travis Wright he’s back in the race. This time, as a write in candidate. Travis asked Duggan whether he had even considered launching a write-in campaign immediately after the court of appeals delivered its ruling.
