Debbie Dingell, the wife of retiring U.S. Democratic Representative John Dingell, will announce on Friday that she will run for his Michigan congressional seat, according to a close friend of hers, who asked not to be identified. "I can confirm that she will announce on Friday that she will seek election to the 12th District" congressional seat, the source said on Tuesday. Congress than anybody else in history, announced on Monday that he would not seek re-election in November. The racially mixed congressional district, which includes the auto manufacturing center of Dearborn outside of Detroit, voted overwhelmingly for Obama in his successful 2012 re-election.
