Four Michigan lawmakers leaving office

Posted: Updated:

Four Michigan lawmakers are exiting the U.S. House in January, leaving their congressional seats with wide open races after years of stability.
    
Democratic Rep. John Dingell, and Republican Reps. Mike Rogers and Dave Camp are retiring. Democratic Rep. Gary Peters is leaving the House to run to replace Democratic Sen. Carl Levin, who's also retiring.
    
Democrats and Republicans are expected to keep their respective House seats, but primary fights are brewing in all but Dingell's district. Less than two weeks before the April 22 filing deadline, the fields could get more crowded.
    
The races in Camp and Rogers' districts look similar, with a few Republicans already declared. Democrat Debbie Dingell is the favorite for her husband's seat, while Peters' district will have a crowded Democratic primary.
