DETROIT (AP) — The Latest on the election to fill a U.S. House seat left vacant by Rep. John Conyers' resignation (all times local):

2:45 p.m.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has scheduled a special election to fill the congressional seat left open by longtime Rep. John Conyers' resignation amid sexual harassment allegations.

The elections will be held in August and November — concurrently with regular primary and general elections. The governor said Friday that his decision gives potential candidates time to make a decision and avoids additional taxpayer costs of holding the special election earlier.

The filing deadline is April 24.

Those already planning to run include state Sen. Ian Conyers, a grandson of John Conyers' brother; and state Sen. Coleman Young II, the son of a former Detroit mayor.

The 88-year-old John Conyers first was elected in 1964.

10:45 a.m.

The son of a former Detroit mayor plans to run for the 13th Congressional District seat vacated by John Conyers following allegations by former staffers of sexual harassment and inappropriate touching.

Spokesman Adolph Mongo says state Sen. Coleman Young II will announce his candidacy Monday. Mongo says Young would run in the scheduled Democratic primary and a special election if, Gov. Rick Snyder calls one.

Young's father was the late Mayor Coleman A. Young.

Democratic state Sen. Ian Conyers, a grandson of John Conyers' brother, also plans to run.

The 88-year-old John Conyers first was elected in 1964. He endorsed his son, John Conyers III, during Wednesday's retirement announcement.

Some U.S. House members had urged the senior Conyers to resign as a House Ethics Committee investigates the harassment claims.
