I suspect there is too much EMF backlash to allow a white candidate to win. All the other black candidates are also-rans. The election comes down to Benny vs. Mike and Benny has the necessary credentials to win in Detroit. He is blacker than Duggan.

If Benny could succeed in bringing crime down a week after his election, would that bring businesses back to the city? Would a 30% reduction work? Businesses may come back because of the low cost of space. People will take many more years of low crime performance before returning. I don't think it matters as business pays the bills. We already see companies willing to risk Detroit to make a buck. Benny could ride this wave of success.
