State House Redistricting - District 58 (HD-58)

State House - District 58
Current Rep - Ken Kurtz (R-Coldwater)

Candidates:
GOP - Ken Kurtz (R-Coldwater)
Dem - Amaryllis Thomas (D-Coldwater)

Update - No primary here. Kurtz shouldn't have much trouble.

2010 Results - Old District (58th)
Ken Kurtz - Unopposed in general election

This is a safe republican district covering Hillsdale and Branch Counties. It remains unchanged from the old districts. It's a safe district that has not gone democrat under its current leanings with both counties going even for McCain. Walberg's won both counties in his congressional runs as well. Hillsdale competes with Livingston County and Allegan County for third place statewide every election. Branch County is safe as well, although more "competitive" than Hillsdale. It would take a disaster candidate to lose this one.
