Former Rep. Hansen Clarke Falls Short

Written by  Cameron Joseph | The Hill
Former Rep. Hansen Clarke Falls Short Greg Nash
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.

Southfield Mayor Brenda Lawrence (D) led Michigan state Rep. Rudy Hobbs (D) by 109 votes with 99 percent of precincts reporting. Both won approximately 36 percent of the vote, with Clarke back at 27 percent. The Associated Press has not called the race.

Clarke lost a primary to Rep. Gary Peters (D-Mich.) in 2012 by a wide margin after Peters's district was scrapped in redistricting. The former congressman decided to take another shot when Peters decided to run for the Senate this year. But he struggled to raise money and his two opponents got more national and local support from unions and elected officials.

Hand Deliver a Letter to your Senators or Representative

If your Senator(s) and/or Representative is not currently a supporter, they may not be aware that the legislation exists. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request for support. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
