McCotter Ends Write-In Campaign for Reelection

June 2, 2012

Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, R-Mich., announced Saturday that he is ending his write-in campaign for reelection, opening an opportunity for a Democrat to win in the district.

"Honoring my promise to the sovereign people of our community only allows me to finish the official duties of my present Congressional term," McCotter said in a statement.

In a competitive district McCotter, an avid rock music fan and erstwhile GOP candidate for president this cycle, had been blessed by weak opposition and has won re-election by unimpressive margins against underfinanced opponents.

“To those who [are] unhappy at this news, I’m sorry; to those happy at this news, you’re welcome,” McCotter said in the statement.
