U.S. Reps. Hansen Clarke and
Gary Peters and Southfield Mayor
Brenda Lawrence gear up for the
Democratic primary for Congress.

Jack Lessenberry I Special to the Jewish News

hugely competitive and hard-fought primary elec-
tion is under way across one of the oddest-shaped
„ congressional districts in Michigan history, a race
where the Jewish vote may well be decisive.
Two incumbent congressmen and a mayor are battling to
win the Democratic nomination in the new 14th District,
which stretches from the Grosse Pointes through southwest
and northeast Detroit, and then plows through Southfield,
West Bloomfield, Farmington Hills, finally ending up in
Keego Harbor and Pontiac.
The election is Aug. 7. Who shows up to vote may be
critical. Slightly more than half the voters are black. Slightly
more than half live in the suburbs. One of the front-run-
ners doesn't live in the district; another just moved there,
and the congressman who does live in the district — John
Conyers — is running someplace else.
