Mike Duggan considering write-in campaign for Detroit mayor

DETROIT (WJBK) -

Mike Duggan is considering a write-in campaign for Detroit mayor.

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.

Supporters have scheduled a rally Thursday at 11 a.m. at Cadillac Place on West Grand Blvd.
