State Senate - District 8

State Senate - District 8

2006 Contest
Republican Candidates – Fred Kalsic (Taylor), Guy Addison Rupert (Southgate)
Democrat Candidates – Raymond Basham (Taylor)

Current Rep – Raymond Basham (D-Taylor)

2002 Results
Raymond Basham – 64.22%
Pamela Montelauro – 32.39%

Presidential results:
Kerry – 61.07%
Bush – 38.00%

Republican Michigander’s prognosis – Safe Democrat

District covers:
Wayne County:
Allen Park, Ecorse, Lincoln Park, Melvindale, Riverview, Romulus, Taylor, Southgate, Wayne Wyandotte

This is a district combining the most democrat parts of Downriver with most of the “Metro Airport” region. It is heavily union and thus, democrat. Allen Park and Riverview are sometimes competitive, although they both lean democrat. The rest of the municipalities are not even close and 58% or more democrat on a consistent basis.

Ray Basham is running for re-election and will win again, barring a disaster.
