LAWTON (WKZO) -- Senator Tonya Schuitmaker of Lawton is seeking re-election but not to represent Kalamazoo this time.

The Republican lawmaker is running for her second term in the Senate in the newly-redrawn 26th District. It includes Van Buren and Allegan counties as well as Kentwood and Gaines Township in Kent County.


She will have a new set of voters to introduce herself to.

Schuitmaker's current district covers all of Kalamazoo County along with Paw Paw and Antwerp Townships in Van Buren County.

The district lines were drawn based on the 2010 census.

Schuitmaker has relaunched her campaign website at votetonya.com where voters can learn more.
