According to a map released Friday by Senate and House Republicans, Democratic U.S. Reps. Sander Levin of Royal Oak and Gary Peters of Oakland County’s Bloomfield Township would end up in the same district, potentially forcing a runoff. Michigan is losing a congressional seat after seeing its population decline in the 2010 census. Republicans have drawn maps that would allow them to keep the nine districts they hold while shrinking the number of Democratic districts from six to five.
