U.S. Rep. McCotter's error could cost seat position
PLYMOUTH, Mich. -- More controversy for Michigan Republicans.
U.S. Representative Thaddeus McCotter will not be on the ballot this election. Over 1,500 of the signatures he collected for his qualifying petition were considered invalid.
They were photo-copied duplicates. Now voters will have to write in McCotter's name on the ballot.
According to Michigan’s secretary of state, in recent memory no congressional write-in candidate has won a primary.
