There are 14 names on the ballot for Detroit mayor, but one of the widely-seen front-runners doesn't even have his name on it. That would be former Detroit Medical Center CEO Mike Duggan. Duggan is running a write-in campaign.

But, in the final weeks of the campaign, another man, a barber in Detroit, decided he too would run a write-in campaign for Mayor. His name is Mike Dugeon.

So, this is an election where spelling counts.

Rick Pluta, Lansing Bureau Chief for the Michigan Public Radio Network, joined us today to talk about these write-in candidates.
