Barrow asks Detroit Clerk to block Duggan write-in campaign

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit mayoral candidate Tom Barrow is asking city clerk Janice Winfrey to not allow Mike Duggan to continue his write in campaign for mayor.

Last week, Duggan announced he would rejoin the race for mayor of Detroit as a write in candidate, after his name was removed from the ballot over a dispute about residency requirements.  Barrow claims a ruling last month by a Wayne County judge to end Duggan's formal mayoral candidacy also blocks him from being on the August 6th primary ballot in any form.

Melvin Hollowell, a legal advisor for the Duggan campaign, says the ruling had nothing to do with a write in candidacy.
