McCotter Could Miss Ballot

May 27, 2012
"We used the same team of volunteers we always do, and handled everything the same way. This isn't our first go-round," McCotter told Detroit News columnist Nolan Finley. But if doing the same thing meant McCotter's volunteers collected signatures from areas he no longer represents, it may have cost him an easy coast to re-election. Now, McCotter faces three options: Run as a write-in candidate in the Republican primary (Though as Finley points out, Michigan law is stacked against write-in candidates); run as an independent, potentially giving Democrats a chance to steal the seat if the Tea Party contender carves off a few percentage points; or call his political career quits. It's an ignominious decision for a former member of Republican leadership. "I'm not sure what happened," McCotter told Finley from Hawaii, where he's returning from a Congressional delegation trip to Asia.
