    If he ran in the 11th. It basically picked up the most Republican parts of Oakland outside of the portions attached to the 8th, and the only portions of the 11th that are in the still-extant 9th are still marginally Republican. Dems would be better off running a Democrat from the Wayne County portion of the district, and Peters running for something else or leaning on national Democrats to lean on Levin to retire.

    •  I hope not (0+ / 0-)

      I think Levin is the better choice so I hope he doesn't retire this year.  I would prefer Peters give it a try in the 11th (or run for county executive).  It will be tough but the Dems need to run someone.  I'm not sure if there's a strong candidate from Wayne county.  They took Westland out of the 11th, probably making unlikely state senator Glenn Anderson will run in the district.  Peters seems like the best candidate, as of now.
