Brenda Lawrence

According to EMILY's List, Brenda Lawrence, mayor of Southfield, Michigan, is a frontrunner in the crowded race to represent the state's 14th congressional district. One of her competitors is former Rep. Hansen Clarke, whose fate in 2010 was largely dictated by redistricting. This is Lawrence's second bid for Congress. She lost in 2012 to incumbent Rep. Gary Peters, who is running for a seat in the U.S. Congress.
