Former Rep. Hansen Clarke Falls Short

Written by
Former Rep. Hansen Clarke (D-Mich.) appears to have fallen short in his congressional comeback bid, trailing his two primary opponents with most of the vote counted.
U.S. Rep. John Conyers Jr. handily won the 13th Congressional District’s Democratic primary Tuesday over challenger Horace Sheffield and is a step closer to becoming the first African-American dean of Congress next year.

U.S. Rep. John Conyers on-again, off-again roller coaster ride for the Aug. 5 ballot took a new twist Friday when U.S. District Judge Matthew Leitman put him back on back on the ballot,

His decision, released late Friday, contradicts the Secretary of State’s review of Conyers petition, which found earlier in the day that Conyers had less than half the required signatures of valid registered voters on the petitions he turned in to qualify for the Aug. 5 primary ballot.

It would be easy to make a list of 10 bad things—wars, government shut-down, drone attacks, lack of progress on immigrant rights, lousy health-care reform.  But it’s also been a year of extraordinary activism: whistleblowers, DREAMers, Walmart workers, peacemakers, gay rights advocates, garment workers. As the year ends, let’s pay tribute to the good things their efforts have wrought.
