U.S. House District 11 Western Oakland-Wayne GOP - Primary

304 of 304 precincts - 100 percent
  
x-Dave Trott 38,638 - 66 percent
Kerry Bentivolio (i) 19,892 - 34 percent

Suburban Detroit lawyer David Trott easily defeated one-term Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, who many considered to be an "accidental" representative after winning in 2012 when a Republican incumbent was knocked off the ballot due to fraudulent petition signatures.
 
"I live in his district and never see him," said Ralph Martin, 76, of Livonia, who voted for Trott over Bentivolio. "I couldn't even form an opinion of him."

 
Trott, 53, spent $2.4 million on the race and secured backing from business groups and others, while Bentivolio -- a former auto designer, teacher and reindeer farmer -- struggled. Trott will face the winner of a four-way Democratic primary in the GOP-leaning 11th District in November.
