Incumbent Conyers wins 13th U.S. House District Dem Primary
With more than half of the precincts reporting, incumbent congressman John Conyers (D-Detroit) has defeated four candidates to win the Democratic primary.
Reports show Conyers winning by a sizeable margin, with almost 60 percent of the votes counted in his favor. State senator Glenn Anderson finished a distant second, with 13 percent.
The congressman will now face GOP candidate Harry Sawicki in the general election. If Rep. Conyers wins re-election in November, it will be his twenty-fourth term serving in the U. S. House of Representatives.
