State House - District 6

State House - District 6

2006 Contest
Republican Candidates – Charity Renee Jones (Detroit)
Democrat Candidates – Stacey Brown, Marsha Cheeks, Marvin Crawford, Reggie Fluker (All Detroit)

Current Rep – Marsha Cheeks (D-Detroit)

2004 Results
Marsha Cheeks – 94.68%
Dorothy Patterson – 5.32%

Presidential results:
Kerry with over 90%

Republican Michigander’s prognosis – Safe Democrat

District covers:
Central Detroit

Marsha Cheeks is related to Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick and the mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. With the mayor’s election and close ties, it’s no shocker to see three primary opponents here. I expect Cheeks to win re-election however due to split votes and incumbency.
