State Senate - District 3

State Senate - District 3

2006 Contest
Republican Candidates – Betty Garrett (Dearborn), Paul Sophiea (Dearborn)
Democrat Candidates – Irma Clark-Coleman (Detroit), Alex Shami (Dearborn), Alison Vaughn (Detroit), Keeth Williams (Detroit)

Current Rep – Irma Clark-Coleman (D-Detroit)

2002 Results
Irma Clark – 80.60%
Jose Hernandez III – 19.40%

Presidential results:
Approximately 80% for John Kerry

Republican Michigander’s prognosis – Safe Democrat.

District covers:
Wayne County:
Dearborn, River Rouge, and Part of Detroit

This is a solid democrat Detroit based district. Dearborn can be competitive at times, and Hernandez almost won there. However, Detroit and River Rouge make this district so democrat that it is a miracle for a Republican to win. The primary is the major battle here.
