All the cards are being played to make Detroit stay black. Kim Worthy, the unions and now the closeted Conyers leave little speculation that white is never right in Detroit. If Duggan merely duplicates his primary, he wins. Then Duggan is in for tough times trying to make something out of hole cloth. He stands a better chance of bringing more resources into the city and maybe even more white citizens to protected enclaves.

Benny promises to cut crime by 50%. He does not say whether that will be in his 4th term. Duggan makes his share or promises. Nobody can deliver the goods so citizens will continue to be unhappy.

Bottom line: the Conyer's endorsement will bring some votes, but I would never consider it a character statemenmt.

If Benny knows the secret to cut crime by 50%, why isn't he implementing the plan now! Please Benny, people are dying!!! Tell us NOW!
The Wayne county sheriff is not the enforcement in Detroit.
Also, the primary job is running the jails. I do believe he is over-promising.

They spend the first 9 months of their lives dodging coat hangers.
