State Senate Redistricting - District 2 (SD-02)

State Senate - District 2

Current Rep – Bert Johnson? (D-Detroit)

2010 Results - Old District
Bert Johnson - 34,858
John Chouinard - 17,459

Presidential results:
Well over 70% for both Kerry and Obama.

This district changed probably the least. It keeps the Grosse Pointes, Hamtramck, and Highland Park. It picks up more of Detroit, particularly Southwest. It's now a 56-57% black district.

If the Chouinard vote looks high for a Detroit based district, it's because all of the Grosse Pointes are in the district. They all voted for him because they don't care much for Detroit democrats. If I had congresscritters like Kwame's mom and before that Barbara Rose Collins, I wouldn't care much for it either.

In general, this is a safe district for Detroit democrats.
