Conyers Not Talking About Bid For Re-Election

DETROIT (WWJ) – Michigan U.S. Rep. John Conyers is remaining mum on whether he’ll run for re-election in the redrawn 13th District … now that fellow Democratic incumbent Hansen Clarke says he’ll run in Conyers’ new district.

The two congressmen currently represent districts made up mostly of Detroit. Both were drastically redrawn by Republicans to add minority voters outside Detroit to make up for the city’s shrinking population.

Conyers’ office is declining comment on whether the 82-year-old will swap with districts with the 54-year-old Clarke.
