Former hospital executive Mike Duggan and Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napolean emerged from a crowded field of Detroit mayoral hopefuls on Tuesday and are set to face off to become the next mayor of a city which recently filed for bankruptcy.

Duggan's write-in campaign -- he was kicked off the ballot over a residency issue --  earned 46 percent of the vote with 100 percent of precincts reporting while Napolean took 30 percent of the vote.
