State Sen. Hansen Clarke made a surprising upset victory Tuesday night over seven-term Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick. With 53% of the results of the district in general, Clarke had a 48% -39% lead over the incumbent, who was first elected to Congress in 1996.
Cheeks Kilpatrick, went down in the elevator at 12:24 am at the Doubletree-Fort Shelby in downtown Detroit, entered the banquet room and quickly gave his concession speech.
“I am here tonight grantor. We did not win the election.’m Going to be a slave and keep doing that. There were six candidates in this race. Unfortunately, they did two and that’s fine. God is in charge.
“I will continue to serve and represent, and wish you well Mr Clarke. Thanks for waiting. I love you all. I could not have done this without you and may God continue to bless us and keep us strong. Thank you all.”
He stepped back in the elevator at 12:26 a.m.
