Accidental Congressman Loses Primary

The accidental congressman's tenure in Washington came to an end Tuesday evening, when Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI) lost the Republican primary to attorney David Trott (R) in this district northwest of Detroit, Roll Call reports.

Detroit Free Press: "Bentivolio had gone into the Republican primary with grave doubts hanging over his political future, and only one potentially significant advantage: his incumbency. From the beginning, it looked like that might not be enough for him to beat Trott, however."
