SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) — The two candidates seeking the Detroit mayor's job have focused on crime and blight in their final debate heading into next week's local elections around Michigan.
The televised confrontation between ex-Detroit Medical Center chief Mike Duggan and Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon took place Tuesday evening at WXYZ's offices in Southfield.
Duggan got about 48,700 votes and Napoleon about 28,300 in Detroit's Aug. 6 primary.
Mayor Dave Bing isn't seeking re-election, and the city is under control of state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr.
Orr is in court seeking to bring Detroit under federal bankruptcy protection to deal with an estimated $18 billion in long-term debt.
The general election is Nov. 5, with votes taking place at communities across the state.
