Peters Ousts Knollenberg in Michigan

Nine-term Rep. Joe Knollenberg (R-Mich.) has lost his re-election bid in suburban Detroit. The Associated Press has called the 9th district race for former state Lottery Commissioner Gary Peters (D), who was leading Knollenberg 51 percent to 43 percent with 84 percent of precincts reporting. At the same time, the race in Michigan’s 7th Congressional district remained too close to call early Wednesday. Freshman Rep. Tim Walberg (R) and state Sen. Mark Schauer (D) traded leads throughout the evening. With 76 percent of precincts reporting, Schauer had a 1,500-vote lead over Walberg, 48 percent to 47 percent.
