Cassis hands out bracelets for congressional race

Some Michigan voters in Oakland and Wayne counties will be sporting dusty red silicone bracelets on Election Day to help them vote for write-in candidate Nancy Cassis of Novi.

Milford resident Kerry Bentivolio was the only candidate on the Republican ballot for the 11th District congressional race after U.S. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter failed to submit enough valid signatures and then dropped out of the race.

Then Cassis and Drexel Morton of Wayne County's Canton Township launched write-in campaigns.

Cassis has handed out thousands of bracelets that have her name and "11th District" embossed on them to help voters remember how to write in her name, but acknowledges it's an uphill battle.

Bentivolio says the bracelets break the law, but the secretary of state's office says they're legal.
