The story behind the recount

In this story on Hendrix's call for a recount of the recent Mayoral race we learn that candidate Freman is certain he won in his own back yard, Northwest Detroit. His poor showing in that area is what prompted his call for a recount. While many credit the hard work of the Kilpatrick campaign for their victory, this quote may say it all: "Many of the people he [Hendrix] used to know since the 1980s have either died or moved to the suburbs," Lansing pollster Ed Sarpolus concluded from census data. It appears that the Mayor's hip-hop supporters put him back in office.
