State Senate - District 11

State Senate - District 11

2006 Contest
Republican Candidates – Alan Sanborn (Richmond)
Democrat Candidates – Kenneth Paul Jenkins (Macomb)

Current Rep – Alan Sanborn (R-Richmond)

2002 Results
Alan Sanborn – 67.94%
Jim Ayers – 32.06%

Presidential results:
Bush – 56.92%
Kerry – 42.19%

Republican Michigander’s prognosis – Safe Republican

District covers:
Macomb County:
Armada Township, Bruce Township, Chesterfield Township, Harrison Township, Lenox Township, Macomb Township, Ray Township, Richmond Township. Shelby Township. Washington Township, Memphis City, Mount Clemens City, New Baltimore City, Richmond City.

This is the most Republican district in Macomb County covering almost all of Northern Macomb. The only democrat area here is Mount Clemens (and sometimes Lenox Twp, but not like it used to be), which is outvoted by the rest of the district. This is a strongly conservative district, especially on 2nd amendment and social issues and Sanborn fits the district well. This area will likely be more republican in the future.
