State House - District 10

State House - District 10

2006 Contest
Republican Candidates – Thomas Schaut (Detroit)
Democrat Candidates – Gabe Leland, Thomas Jackson, Ron Johnson, Jackie Lawrence, Shana Lesure, Barbara Long, Frederick Roquemore, Stephanie Young (All Detroit)
Current Rep – Gabe Leland (D-Detroit)

2004 Results
Gabe Leland – 90.70%
Reuben Myers – 9.30%

Presidential results:
Kerry with around 90%

Republican Michigander’s prognosis – Safe Democrat

District covers:
Western Detroit

Gabe Leland is the incumbent with a lot of primary opponents due to City Politics. This district is solidly democrat, but slightly less so (Closer to 85% than 95% so it’s not a contestable seat anytime soon) than other Detroit districts since this district has some blue collar white areas of the city in Warrendale. It’s still solidly democrat. The primary will be the big decision here.
