State House Redistricting - District 77 (HD-77)

State House - District 77
Current Rep - Thomas Hooker (R-Byron Township)

Candidates:
GOP - Thomas Hooker (R-Byron Center)
Dem - Scott Barton (D-Byron Center)

Update 5-27-2012 - We have another rematch.

Old District (77th)
Thomas Hooker - 18,088
Scott Barton - 6,913

This is a safe district unchanged by redistricting. It covers Byron Township and the City of Wyoming. Wyoming leans GOP outside of the 2008 cratering by McCain. It is still getting bluer with minorities, particularly Mexicans moving there from Southern Grand Rapids. Byron Township is one of the most GOP areas of Kent County, consistently over 70% GOP with 5000+ vote spreads. Until the dems start winning Wyoming by 5000+ votes, this won't even be competitive. Even in 08, it wasn't that close.
