Democrat Dingell Will Not Run for U.S. Senate Seat
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Democrat Debbie Dingell says she won’t be making a bid for the U.S. Senate seat Carl Levin will vacate in 2014.
Dingell, who’s married to Congressman John Dingell of Dearborn and serves on Wayne State’s Board of Governors, had been considering running for several weeks. Even though polling data showed she would likely be a front runner in the race, she has declined to enter, saying it’s important to get behind one candidate for what she says will be an expensive race.
The move likely clears the way for Oakland County Congressman Gary Peters to take the Democratic nomination.
