Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has scheduled a November 2018 election to replace disgraced Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., a decision that will leave much of Detroit without representation in Congress for nearly a year.

The 88-year-old Conyers, who served in Congress for 52 years, stepped down Tuesday after multiple former aides accused him of misconduct.
