Republican Michigander’s prognosis – Safe Democrat
Part of Allen Park, All of Ecorse, River Rouge, Lincoln Park, and Melvindale.
This is the most democrat district in the Downriver area. Ecorse and River Rouge are over 80% democrat and heavily minority. Lincoln Park and Melvindale are democrat strongholds which are almost always 65% democrat. Allen Park is almost a swing area and winnable (Posthumus won it, and Bush got 47.02% in 04), but it is split between two solid democrat districts. Allen Park is winnable, but that’s about it here barring a miracle.
