Conyers Does Not Make Ballot

Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-MI) failed to qualify for the Michigan 13th District primary ballot, Roll Call reports.

"Conyers' re-election had been a foregone conclusion -- as it has been for decades -- until recent weeks, when the 25-term incumbent's position on the ballot became imperiled. Two individuals collecting signatures for Conyers' ballot-qualifying petition were found to not be registered voters and thereby the signatures were ruled invalid. As a result, Conyers did not meet the 1,000-signature threshold to appear on the Aug. 5 primary ballot."
