Rep. John Con­yers (D) is 400 sig­na­tures short of mak­ing the primary bal­lot, ac­cord­ing to Wayne County Clerk Cathy Gar­rett. Con­yers’s at­tor­ney said they still be­lieved they re­ceived more than the ne­ces­sary 1,000 val­id sig­na­tures ne­ces­sary and will fight the de­cision. Con­yers ori­gin­ally turned in 2,000 sig­na­tures, of which 1,193 were found to be val­id. But two sig­na­ture-gather­ers were found to not be re­gistered voters when they col­lec­ted sig­na­tures, in­val­id­at­ing an­oth­er 400. (MLive.com)

Con­yers’s cam­paign man­ager said he is pre­pared to run as a write-in can­did­ate if ne­ces­sary. (De­troit News)
