State senator Bieda joins race for Macomb County clerk after ending campaign for Congress

Democrat Steve Bieda of Warren had been running to replace U.S. representative Sandy Levin, who's retiring.

Now Bieda is running for Macomb County clerk.

In a statement yesterday, he said his decision was influenced by the "corruption and scandal" under former clerk Karen Spranger.

Spranger was removed from office by a judge last month.

Bieda has been a state senator since 2010 and also served as a state representative.

The remaining candidates for the Democratic nomination in the 9th Congressional district are Sandy Levin's son Andy Levin, former state Representative Ellen Lipton, and Martin Brook, a lawyer from Bloomfield Township.
