SR 144 - A map of Democratic performance
Despite an increase over Obama's performance and over Janette Sexton's in 2006, Joel Redmond fell just short of being the state representative in state house district 144. The very heavy turnout and very Republican voting by predominately whites in the central portion of the district around Fairmont Drive was again key to the Republican victory. This area is upper middle income and heavily church going with a strong Mormon presence.
Map made with MapPoint 2006 and GIMP 2.
This is preliminary. It needs to be cleaned up some and some overlapping precincts sorted out and the data behind it shown.
