Pennsylvania's 9th congressional district has been a relatively safe seat for the Republicans. In 2012, the long-time Republican incumbent, former businessman Bill Shuster, won a new term over his Democratic opponent, nurse Karen Ramsburg, taking 62% of the vote. In 2010, he won 73% of the vote, and in 2008 won 64%. Shuster was first elected to the district in 2001, effectively inheriting the seat from his father, Bud Shuster, who had held the seat since 1973. According to the Cook Partisan Voting Index, in 2010 the 9th was the most Republican district in Pennsylvania, then with a score of R +17. Redistricting slightly increased the number Democrats in the district, with the addition of majority-Democratic Fayette County. (More from Freebase)
