Congressman John Conyers easily wins primary

DETROIT (WKZO) -- After fighting through the courts to get on the ballot, Michigan Congressman John Conyers cruised to an easy win in his primary.

Conyers earned 74-percent of the vote Tuesday to defeat Reverend Horace Sheffield in the Democratic primary. If he wins in the November general election against Republican Jeff Gorman, the 85-year-old will become the oldest member of the House of Representatives.

Conyers was not able to vote for himself in the primary because the recent redistricting puts his home in a different congressional district.
