State House Redistricting - District 37 (HD-37)

State House - District 37
Current Reps - Vicki Barnett (D-Farmington Hills)

Declared Candidates:
Dem - Vicki Barnett (D-Farmington Hills)
GOP - Bruce Lilley (R-Farmington)

Update 5-25-2012 - No primaries here. It's strictly a one on one battle. 

2010 Results - Old District (37th)
Vicki Barnett - 20,750
Christopher Atallah - 12,633

This district has been unchanged for 20 years. It covers Farmington Hills and Farmington. It's been democrat for 10 years when Rocky Raczkowski was termed out, and with demographic changes, is likely to stay that way barring a surprise. Aldo Vagnozzi held the district after Rocky, and Vicki Barnett replaced Aldo. Bush ran almost 50/50 in 2000, lost this district in 2004, and Obama won it big in 2008. The reason I think is largely migration. This was once fairly republican territory and Joe Knollenberg country. A lot of the Republicans in Farmington Hills are now out in places like South Lyon or Livingston County. More and more of Southfield is now here. This is now a 30% minority district.

If it's a good year, I can see maybe more strong attempt at this seat when it opens up, depending on candidates. It'll take the right year and the right match up to possibly steal this district back.
