DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) -

There are new developments today in the evolving list of candidates running for Detroit mayor. On Wednesday Michigan's elections director cleared the way for ex-health care executive Mike Duggan to be a write-in candidate.
 
Duggan was considered a leading candidate to replace outgoing Mayor Dave Bing before a legal challenge knocked him off the Aug. 6 primary ballot, saying he hadn't lived in Detroit long enough before filing to run.
 
Duggan then said he'd run a write-in race. Answering a request that Michigan disqualify Duggan, Elections Director Chris Thomas says Duggan met all City Charter requirements for a write-in campaign.
 
Mayoral candidate Tom Barrow first challenged Duggan's ballot status. Duggan and Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon have been seen as leading candidates for mayor. Duggan would need to finish at least second in the primary to appear on the Nov. 5 general election ballot.

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.
