State House - District 22

State House - District 22

2006 Contest
Republican Candidates – Ben Armstrong (Taylor)
Democrat Candidates – Hoon-Yung Hopgood, Kenneth Johnson (Both Taylor)

Current Rep – Hoon-Yung Hopgood (D-Taylor)

2004 Results
Hoon-Yung Hopgood – 74.84%
Fred Kalsic – 21.39%

Presidential results:
Kerry – 63.78%
Bush – 35.41%

Republican Michigander’s prognosis – Safe Democrat

District covers:
Romulus and Taylor

This is the main “Metro Airport” district covering Romulus and Taylor. Unions (Auto and Airport) and government workers are numerous here contributing to the high democrat percentage here. Nearby Wayne has a Ford truck plant as well.

Romulus and Taylor are both democrat strongholds going 72.09% and 60.55% for Kerry. It is even more democrat on the local level. Overall, it was Kerry’s third best Wayne County District outside of Detroit. This one isn’t going to change hands barring a miracle.
