THE RACE

General Election:  November 6, 2012


The District:  The 9th Congressional District of Michigan is a congressional district in Eastern Michigan, maintaining a liberal voting record with seated Representative Sandy Levin (D). However, as per the 2010 Census results, the lines of the 9th Congressional District have been adapted and now include more conservative voters in Michigan. This development has caused the partisan voter index (PVI) to shift significantly to the right.
