Lisa Howze, Detroit Mayoral CandidateTalk about strategic timing.

State Rep. Lisa Howze will advertise her Detroit mayoral candidacy during this week's most-watch program, Steve Neavling reports at his Motor City Muckraker blog.    

The first-term legislator has bought space to run a Super Bowl ad on CBS on Feb. 3, six months before the primary election.
