Republican Michigander’s prognosis – Safe Democrat.
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.
