Romulus and Taylor
This is the main “Metro Airport” district covering Romulus and Taylor. Unions (Auto and Airport) and government workers are numerous here contributing to the high democrat percentage here. Nearby Wayne has a Ford truck plant as well.
Romulus and Taylor are both democrat strongholds going 72.09% and 60.55% for Kerry. It is even more democrat on the local level. Overall, it was Kerry’s third best Wayne County District outside of Detroit. This one isn’t going to change hands barring a miracle.
