State House Redistricting - District 34 (HD-34)

State House - District 34
Current Reps - Woodrow Stanley (D-Flint)

Dem - Woodrow Stanley (D-Flint)
GOP - Bruce Rogers (R-Flint)

2010 Results - Old District (34th)
Woodrow Stanley - 13,416
Bruce Rogers - 2,719

This district covers most of Flint, especially the North and East Side. It's approximately 60% black and voted approximately 89% for Obama. Rogers actually ran almost double percentage-wise of what McCain did in the old district. That's because Stanley is well known as a recalled mayor. Rogers won a couple of precincts. Adam Ford, who was Stanley's previous challenger, also won a couple of precincts. It doesn't make a difference in the whole scheme of things with the partisan nature of the district, but it shows how flawed a candidate is if a democrat with straight ticket help gets beat ANYWHERE in the City of Flint. Stanley's predecessor, Brenda Clack, won every precinct. Virg Bernero won every precinct in Flint despite getting blown out. John Engler won 10 of them in 1998 against Fieger in a blowout.

The primary is the election here.

(The comments on the post above don't seem to work, so I'll post here.)

In fairness, Amash likely voted no on tenth amendment grounds. See also Gun Owners of America on the bill.

I fixed the comment in the other thread. The roll call link was messed up too. That's fixed.

GOA has some points regarding Vermont Carry and the lack of help to may issue. However, it helps all the shall issue/bad reciprocity cases.

Overall, this is an improvement and we gain more than we lose. I don't think we should let the perfect be the enemy of the good.
