State House Redistricting - District 105 (HD-105)

State House - District 105
Current Rep - Greg MacMaster (R - Kewadin)

Candidate:
GOP - Greg MacMaster (R-Kewadin)
Dem - Willim Wieske (D-Gaylord)

Old District (105th)
Greg MacMaster - 25,907
Greg Dean - 10,702

This district was and still is probably the safest in North Michigan for the Republicans, and the 2nd safest overall besides the Marquette district. The old district covered Charlevoix, Otsego, Antrim, and part of Cheboygan County. It drops Cheboygan County and picks up Montmorency and Oscoda Counties. I think this is a very poor district, possibly helping concede the 106th.

Otsego and Antrim Counties are base counties and carry the day. The rest of the areas if aren't safe republican, strongly lean that way. The only exception is against someone like a Bart Stupak.

The new 105th is almost as gerrymandered as the new 106th. Not including Beaver Island, I have it at about 130 miles from one end to another. This is absurd. I don't know they drew the 105th and 106th in such gerrymandered shapes. The districts are vastly different; culturally, economically, and so forth.
