Incumbent Duggan Handily Wins Detroit Mayoral Primary

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan handily won Tuesday’s nonpartisan primary election in the city, and will square off against second place finisher, Deputy Mayor Anthony Adams in the November general election.

With 100% of precincts reporting, Duggan received 72.5% of the vote, while Adams, his nearest opponent in the primary, garnered just 10%; Tom Barrow, a perennial candidate, came in third, with 6%, and Myya Jones, running for the second time, received 5%.

“We’ve had a lot of ups and downs but never wavered and I’m just deeply appreciative,” Duggan told supporters at a gathering on the city’s east side.

“Starting tomorrow, we’re going to be back knocking on every door in every neighborhood in the city because we have a long way to go,” he said.

Though the margin between the first and second-place finishers was 60 percentage points, Adams expressed confidence that he can still pull out a victory later this year.

“It’s been a wonderful experience so far,” he told The Detroit News. “This race is really about inspiring people that we can truly get to the next level. If we continue to work together and work for a common purpose which is to uplift everybody in our city.”
