Mike Duggan says he will run for Mayor of Detroit as a write-in candidate.While I was wrong about Duggan giving up, I was right about this election being great entertainment. Pass the popcorn.
On a related note, one of my colleagues passed on the rumor that Duggan was going to be running for Governor. I replied that it wasn't going to happen, as the Democrats have already settled on Mark Schauer and Duggan's most visible backers were Detroit Republicans. Now I can point to this announcement and say, "See, he's not running for Governor."
I also gave my one-minute pitch for Schauer, which left my colleague knowing more about him than she had ever heard. Of course, it helps that he was my representative when I was living out in the country and I met him while he was running in 2008.
