Peters Beats Clarke in Michigan 14th District Dem Primary

August 7, 2012
Clarke concentrated more heavily on Wayne County and Detroit, and his campaign was bogged down in side issues for the final stages of the race. After a voter began sending around information suggesting that Clarke was not actually black, Clarke pulled out of the remaining candidate debates and accused his opponents of peddling "racial rhetoric." Clarke is the ninth House member to lose a primary this cycle. Four lost to outside challengers, while another four -- Reps. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, Don Manzullo, R-Ill., Jason Altmire, D-Pa., and Steve Rothman, D-N.J. -- all lost member-versus-member primaries that were forced by redistricting.
