Incumbent Michigan Congressman loses Republican primary

LANSING (WKZO) -- An incumbent Congressman is going down to defeat in Michigan. Tea party Republican Kerry Bentivolio has lost in the 11th District primary election to establishment-backed challenger Dave Trott.

Bentivolio is known as the "Accidental Congressman" because he was elected two years ago when veteran Congressman Thaddeus McCotter resigned in disgrace over fraudulent voter signatures. Trott is a real estate attorney who has spent millions more on his campaign than Bentivolio.
