Official: Conyers lacks signatures for ballot
DETROIT (AP) — Longtime Congressman John Conyers of Michigan doesn’t have enough signatures to appear on the Aug. 5 primary ballot, an elections official announced Tuesday.
Conyers’ nominating petitions were insufficient, Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett said in a statement.
It follows her report last week finding Conyers more than 400 signatures short of 1,000 needed. Garrett said Tuesday that he had 592 valid signatures after challenges.
