Michigan's 11th congressional district

Michigan's 11th congressional district is a United States congressional district northwest of Detroit, comprising portions of northwestern Wayne and southwestern Oakland counties. Until 1993, the district covered the state's Upper Peninsula and the northernmost portion of the Lower Peninsula (a.k.a. Northern Michigan). In redistricting that year, it was shifted to the outer Detroit area. Its former geographical area is now the state's first district.

Its current configuration dates from 2003. Population growth in the Detroit suburbs resulted in redistricting to create a new district in that region, even as Michigan lost a district overall after the census.

The 11th district was represented by Thad McCotter from 2003 until his resignation on July 6, 2012.[2][3] He was replaced by Democrat David Curson, who won a special election on November 6, 2012.[3][4] Curson was sworn in on November 13. He was replaced by Kerry Bentivolio in January 2013, who had been elected in the regular fall election in 2012.[3][5] David Trott was elected in 2014 and seated in January 2015. He did not seek reelection in 2018. Democrat Haley Stevens was elected on November 6, 2018, and is representative-elect.

History

The 11th congressional district formed in 1993 was given portions of the old 15th (mainly Westland), 2nd (Livonia), 17th (the included portion of Southfield), 6th (Highland and White Lake Townships), and 18th congressional districts. Most of its territory came from the old 18th congressional district.

In 2003, the district was essentially split in two. The bulk of the district–most of the Oakland County portion–became the 9th District, while a new 11th was created mostly out of the Wayne County portion of the old 11th, combined with a sliver of Oakland.

Politics

The area that the 11th now covers has historically been strongly Republican. Since the 1990s it has become a swing district, with just a slight Republican lean. Voters have frequently continued to support Republicans in House races.
