State House Redistricting - District 49 (HD-49)

State House - District 49th
Current Reps - Jim Ananich (D-Flint), Richard Hammel (D-Mt Morris Twp, termed out)

Candidates
GOP - Robert Daunt (R-Flint)
Dem - Jim Ananich (D-Flint)

Update 5-26-2012 - No primary here.

2010 Results - Old District (49th)

This district is one of two districts that contains part of the City of Flint. Most of Flint is in the 34th district, pushing the 49th more out into the suburbs. The old 49th covered part of Flint, Flint Twp, Swartz Creek, Gaines Twp, and part of Clayton Twp. The new 49th drops a small part of Flint to the 34th, Gaines and Clayton Twps to the new 51st, and picks up the City of Flushing, Mt Morris, and Mt Morris Twp.

Jim Ananich is the incumbent and is from Flint. Hammel is also in this district, but termed out, so there won't be a primary between those two. I can't run exact numbers yet because of the split cities, but this district is the 2nd most democrat in Genesee County due to Flint and Mt Morris. If Ananich is going to have trouble, it will be in the primary. This was about a 70% Obama district according to Dave's redistricting.
