(WXYZ) - Hansen Clarke has won the Democratic nomination in the 13th Congressional District.
Clarke's victory is an upset over sitting Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick. Many political analysts believe the legal troubles of the congresswoman's son, former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, contributed to her loss.
Because of the nature of the district, the nomination is viewed as an automatic path to the Congressional seat.
