Rep. Sander M. Levin endorsed state House Democratic Floor Leader Rudy Hobbs on Wednesday in the Democratic primary for Michigan's 14th District.

“When elected to the U.S. House, Rudy will be a powerful advocate and a tireless fighter for the residents throughout the 14th District in Detroit and Oakland County," Levin said in a press release. "I look forward to actively supporting his campaign.”

Hobbs, who announced his campaign last week, is one of a number of Democrats mentioned in a recent CQ Roll Call outlook of this open-seat race. Former Rep. Hansen Clarke is expected to run again in this district, which includes parts of downtown Detroit and its suburbs.

This is a race to replace Rep. Gary Peters, who is running for Senate in 2014.

Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call rates this race as Safe Democratic.
