LANSING (WWJ) – Democrat Gary Peters would square off against Republican Thad McCotter under a congressional map drawn by Michigan Democrats.

State Democratic Chairman Mark Brewer says the map shows how Detroit’s two black-majority districts can be extended into Detroit’s northern suburbs while remaining compact.

Republicans control the redistricting process with majorities in the state House and Senate.

The GOP map pits Peters against fellow Democratic incumbent Sander Levin.

Michigan is losing one of 15 congressional seats because of falling population.

A copy of the map was obtained Monday by The Associated Press from the Michigan Democratic Party.
