I thought that the two Southfield candidates running against Clarke and Peters were (i) the black Mayor and (ii) a Jewish city tresurer or some such. Peters would have beaten Clarke on primary day (I’m not talking about a hypothetical run-off, which would have much lower turnout) even had it been one-on-one. Maybe Clarke being 50% Bangladeshi hurt him, and the Southfield Mayor running alone could have won.

I think that Peters wil lrun for governor or Senator just to avoid that 2014 House primary.

You can see the primary candidates here from 2012. I still think Peters commands enough support to be renominated in 2014, barring some hugely popular Black challenger. Clarke may run again, but unless this is an open seat, I don’t see him winning (and ‘14 may feature a depressed Black turnout as well, so a single White candidate absent Peters from Oakland County could take it).

Being half-White sure hurt Obama in 2000 against Bobby Rush, it may have been the centerpiece of Rush's campaign. But Rush was Black, Peters is not. Those other 2 Black candidates cost Clarke the win.
