LANSING, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – On Tuesday, former Detroit Police Chief James Craig said he will file as a write-in candidate for Michigan’s August 2nd primary election.

Last month, the Michigan Board of Canvassers denied Craig a spot on the ballot due to invalid and insufficient signatures.
The board also denied the signature petitions of several other candidates for the same reason, including GOP gubernatorial candidate Perry Johnson.
On Monday, a federal judge refused Johnson’s request to halt the printing of ballots for the GOP primary or to put his name on the ballot for governor.
Johnson has hinted at a write-in campaign as well.
Five GOP gubernatorial names will appear on the printed ballot in August. They are Tudor Dixon, Ryan Kelley, Ralph Rebandt, Kevin Rinke, and Garrett Soldano.
