Democratic candidate John De Vito won a three-way primary last week in the 3rd State Senate District, but his one and only mailing to 4,800 votes was missing in action in the final days of the campaign.

De Vito said he spent $2,000 with printing firm Allied Media in Fenton, Michigan, which was supposed to deliver the political literature on the last weekend of the campaign. The mailings never arrived, De Vito said.

A woman who answered the phone at Allied said the company is not authorized to speak to anyone but a client about work that was done.

Without the mailing, DeVito said he had to rely solely on his volunteers. “It was all footwork,” he said.
