State House Redistricting - District 6 (HD-06)

State House - District 6
Current Rep – Maureen Stapleton? Rashida Talib?

Declared Candidates:
GOP - Darrin Daigle (R-Detroit)
DEM -  Rashida Talib (D-Detroit)

Update 8-30-2012 - Talib won the primary in a close election. 

UPDATE 5-1-2012
This should be an interesting primary.Two incumbents are battling each other in this new district. I wouldn't want to make a bet here since I think it could go either way.

2010 Results - Old District (4th) (12th)

Maureen Stapleton - 15561
Lillian Smith - 547

Rashida Talib - 6997
Darrin Daigle - 611

This district covers Downtown, The Riverfront, most of Southwest, and part of Detroit's East Side. It also picks up Ecorse and River Rouge from the 14th District. It's a 85%+ democrat district, so the primary is the real election.
