Michigan: SEIU Backs Peters Over Clarke for Detroit Seat
Rep. Gary Peters (D) picked up the endorsement of the Service Employees International Union Michigan State Council on Wednesday.
“With the SEIU joining a growing number of labor unions supporting my candidacy, I am confident that we will be successful in our grassroots campaign to strengthen the economy and help families in the Greater Detroit region,” Peters said in a statement.
Peters faces fellow Democratic Rep. Hansen Clarke and Southfield Mayor Brenda Lawrence in the Aug. 7 primary. The Detroit-area district strongly favors Democrats, and the winner of this primary will most likely win the seat.
