SOS Drops Efforts to Keep Conyers Off Ballot

Lead in text: 
Conyers' candidacy in the Democratic primary August 5 had been in question after the Wayne Co. Circuit Clerk ruled he hadn't met the requirement to gather 1,000 signatures.
The Michigan Secretary of State will not appeal a judge's order to place U.S. Rep. John Conyers on the primary ballot. "Based on the facts of the judge's order, the state has decided not to appeal in the Conyers case," according to the Secretary of State's Office.
