State House Redistricting - District 60 (HD-60)

State House - District 60
Current Rep - Sean McCann (D-Kalamazoo)

Candidates:
GOP - Mike Perrin (R-Kalamazoo)
Dem - Sean McCann (D-Kalamazoo)

Old District (60th)
Sean McCann - 13,841
Jeff Fernandez - 8,024

This is one of the safest democrat districts in West Michigan. It has all of the City of Kalamazoo and part of Kalamazoo Township. The old district drops Cooper Township and takes in most, although not all, of Kalamazoo Township making it more democrat. The City of Kalamazoo is usually 60%+ democrat thanks to WMU, Kalamazoo College, and the minority population on the city's north side. According to Dave's redistricting, it was a 72% Obama district.
