State Senate - District 1

State Senate - District 1

2006 Contest
Republican Candidates – Cynthia Cassell (Grosse Pointe)
Democrat Candidates – Hansen Clarke (Detroit), LaMar Lemmons (Detroit), Martha Waters (Detroit)

Current Rep – Hansen Clarke (D-Detroit)

2002 Results
Hansen Clarke – 93.66%
Cynthia Cassell – 6.34%

Presidential results:
Approximately 93% for John Kerry

Republican Michigander’s prognosis – Safe Democrat.

District covers:
Wayne County:
Part of Detroit

This is the 2nd most democrat state senatorial district in the state, and is entirely in the City of Detroit. It would take a miracle to win here.

That said, it will be an interesting primary between two of Detroit's A-Team democrats. LaMar Lemmons and Hansen Clarke will have a tough primary.
