Congressman from Mich. seeks to get back on ballot

DETROIT — Longtime US Representative John Conyers on Friday appealed a decision that he lacked enough valid signatures to get on the August primary election ballot, part of a larger legal campaign to restore his name and run for a 26th term.

Conyers’s filing with the Michigan secretary of state’s office seeks to reverse this week’s decision by Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett to keep the Democrat off the ballot because some petition collectors hadn’t complied with state voter registration requirements.
