Current Rep – Lamar Lemmons (D-Detroit)

2004 Results
Lamar Lemmons – 94.74%
Edith Floyd – 5.26%

Presidential results:
Kerry with over 90%

Republican Michigander’s prognosis – Safe Democrat

District covers:
Detroit’s NE Side

This district is all in the city of Detroit, covering part of its Northeast Side. The major race is the democrat primary where one of the Lamar Lemmons (There’s three of them – father, son, and grandfather) is being challenged by four different people in the primary. There is a major split within Detroit between the Kilpatrick supporters and Hendrix supporters from the mayor’s race and it has spilled out into the state representative races. I am unfamiliar with the primary challengers, but anything can happen in Detroit primaries. There could be some interesting primaries this year.
