Rep. Gary Peters has won a key endorsement in his race against Rep. Hansen Clarke for Michigan’s 14th district. Members of the United Auto Workers have decided to back Peters in the Member-vs.-Member Democratic primary.

“As a Member of Congress, Gary Peters has shown tremendous leadership and courage by leading the fight for the automotive industry, including his work to secure the auto loans which saved over a million American automotive jobs,” said Chuck Hall, director of UAW Region 1.

Roll Call rates this race as Safe Democratic.
