(MAP) How Did Edina Vote in Senate District 49 Race?

Patch combed through results from Tuesday's election to see which precincts went to Keith Downey and which voted for Melisa Franzen.

Melisa Franzen (DFL) won the race for Senate District 49 by more than 3,800 votes against Republican Keith Downey.

But how exactly did the political newcomer upset the seasoned state representative? And which parts of Edina went for each candidate?

Patch has combed through results from Edina's 20 precincts, crafting those vote totals into a handy map (seen above). If you'd rather see the hard numbers, a chart of each precinct's votes regarding Senate District 49 are included below.

appears to be an economic divide in Edina. It would be interesting to see the presidential results in Edina by precinct. Edina is probably the wealthiest city in MN that went for Obama.

David, the map would basically be identical to this one. I put it together, but didn't post it to the site because it's literally the exact same map. Each precinct that went for Franzen also went for Obama and each one that voted for Downey also voted for Romney.
