Former Presidential Candidate May Not Be On Ballot

Michigan Rep. Thaddeus McCotter may not be on his primary’s ballot for re-election. The Michigan Secretary of State notified the campaign they may have an insufficient amount of signatures. Their main problem was double-signatures, in which case both signatures are disqualified. Rep. McCotter was returning from a congressional delegation to South Korea. The campaign will announce their decision going forward on Tuesday. The Detroit Free Press is reporting that they may be considering a write-in campaign. Rep. McCotter won the seat in 2002, and in 2012 made a short-lived run at the Presidency. The primary is August 7.
