Michigan state Sen. Martha Scott has announced her bid for Congress against Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick. Former state Rep. Mary Waters was already in the race, Michigan Liberal reports.
Kilpatrick hasn't faced a serious challenger since winning the seat back in 1996. Can't help but wonder whether she's been weakened by fallout from her son's problems.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
