State Senate - District 2

State Senate - District 2

2006 Contest
Republican Candidates – Michael Hoehn (Grosse Pointe)
Democrat Candidates – Martha Scott (Highland Park), Ernest Madison (Detroit), Bill McConico (Detroit), Sigmund Szczepkowski (Detroit)

Current Rep – Martha Scott (D-Detroit)

2002 Results
Martha Scott – 67.97%
Jeffrey Schroeder – 32.03%

Presidential results:
Approximately 70% for John Kerry

Republican Michigander’s prognosis – Safe Democrat.

District covers:
Wayne County:
Highland Park, Hamtramck, Grosse Pointes, and Part of Detroit

This is a solid democrat district, as Highland Park, Hamtramck, and Detroit easily outvote the Grosse Pointes who are about 1/5 of the district’s population. This is the least democrat of the Detroit based districts, but that doesn’t mean it is very competitive.

The primary for the democrats should be competitive, especially between McConico and Scott.
