Duggan to announce write-in decision for Detroit mayor Friday

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) -

Mike Duggan plans to announce Friday his decision on a potential write-in campaign for Detroit mayor.

Watch live coverage of the announcement from Duggan's East Jefferson campaign headquarters right here at 10 a.m.

A spokesman for the former Detroit Medical Center CEO says Duggan returned early from a vacation Wednesday to meet with supporters, a week after the Court of Appeals kept him off the August primary ballot due to a dispute over his residency.

Duggan told Fox 2 last week a write-effort would be "extremely difficult." But spokesman John Roach says Duggan's change of heart was due to overwhelming support from voters.

It would take Duggan 20,000 votes to advance to the November general election.
