Thaddeus McCotter To Run As A Write-In Candidate

Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI), the five-term Republican from Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, announced today that he will seek re-election as a write-in candidate. 

In a column for The Detroit News, McCotter acknowledged that he did not garner the requisite number of signatures to earn a spot on the August 7 primary ballot.  The secretary of state’s office revealed Friday that there were irregularities on McCotter’s petition.
