State House Redistricting - District 91 (HD-91)

State House - District 91
Current Rep - Holly Hughes (R-Montague)

Candidates:
GOP - Holly Hughes (R-Montague)
Dem - Collene Lamonte (D-Montague)

Update - Hughes as a primary and a general election to contend with in the perennial battleground district known as the 91st.

Update 8-30-2012 - Hughes won her primary.

Old District (91th)
Holly Hughes - 16,034
Ben Gillette - 12,628

The 91st is a swing district that has been competitive in most elections for a long time. Gerald Van Woerkem had some tough victories here. David Farhat and Mary Valentine battled for it. Holly Hughes ran twice for it and one once. Muskegon County overall is the most democrat part of West Michigan by far with a large union and sizable minority population. Most of the major democrat areas are in the 92nd district, but the 91st district has flipped twice.

The 91st didn't change much with redistricting. It dropped Chester Twp in Ottawa County which is republican and dropped Whitehall Twp which leans democrat. McCain was absolutely clobbered in this district back in 08, even in normally friendly areas like Fruitport and Norton Shores. Bush won the district narrowly. Dalton Twp, Roosevelt Park, and Egelston Townships are always problem spots. Norton Shores and Fruitport Twp are key areas. The GOP needs to win those areas by a good margin to keep the district.

This district should be competitive again this decade.
