State House - District 7

State House - District 7

2006 Contest
Republican Candidates – none
Democrat Candidates – Virgil Smith, Brenda Goss Andrews, Richard Carson

Current Rep – Virgil Smith (D-Detroit)

2004 Results
Virgil Smith – 96.43%
Dolores Brodersen – 3.57%

Presidential results:
Kerry with over 90%

Republican Michigander’s prognosis – Safe Democrat

District covers:
North Central Detroit

Virgil Smith has the same name as his dad who was also a state legislator. That’s a big advantage in the era of term limits when it comes to keeping a district in the family. There’s no republican running, so the primary winner wins it all. Smith has two challengers, but I expect him to win.
