Bentivolio wins special Mich. US House GOP primary

Posted: Updated:

Former high school English teacher Kerry Bentivolio has won the Republican primary and advances to a special general election on Nov. 6 that will decide who fills the final weeks of ex-U.S. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter's term in Congress.
 
With all percent of precincts reporting, Bentivolio of Milford got 41.4 percent of the vote to beat ex-state Sen. Nancy Cassis of Novi and three others in Wednesday's special 11th District GOP primary.
 
He'll face Democrat David Curson of Belleville on Nov. 6. The winner serves from mid-November until Dec. 31.
 
McCotter abruptly resigned in July after faulty petition signatures barred him from the ballot.
 
A separate contest on the Nov. 6 ballot decides who fills the seat in 2013-14. Bentivolio faces Democratic Canton Township Trustee Syed Taj in that race.
