Through the general election on November 6, the MLC Blog will be highlighting races generally considered swing seats, ones either party could win because of the voter base.  Candidate’s website and professional information is listed when available.

 District Overview

The 52nd House District is located in Washtenaw County in Southeast Michigan.


Representative Donna Lasinski (D) is running to earn a second term in the Michigan House While the district only has a 51% Democratic base, a Democrat has won this seat consistently, with the exception of the 2010 and 2014. Lasinski has the significant advantage in this race and has worked hard to be visible and increase her name ID during her first term in office. Lasinski also had a huge fundraising advantage coming out of the primary.
