Citing a source close to the campaign, the Detroit Free Press reports that McCotter may run as a write-in candidate.

“He’s the only one with the name recognition and the cash on hand to win a write-in race,” the source told the Free Press, which noted the availability of $193,000 in cash based on McCotter’s most recent filing with the Federal Election Commission.

Michigan election rules require congressional candidates to collect at least 1,000 valid signatures to have their names placed on the ballot. In the case of duplicate signatures, both signatures are discounted, the Free Press reported.
