The Fourth Congressional district of North Carolina is located in the central region of the state. The district stretches from Burlington to Fayetteville. It includes two-thirds of the state capital, Raleigh, all of Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and Hillsborough, and portions of Durham. The district is currently represented by 11-term Congressman David Price, a former political science professor at Duke who was first elected in 1986, ousting one-term Republican incumbent Bill Cobey. Price was reelected in 1988, 1990, and 1992, but he was defeated in his bid for a fifth term in 1994 by Republican Fred Heineman, the Raleigh Police Chief, in a generally bad year for Democrats in North Carolina. Price came back to defeat Heineman in a rematch in 1996, and has been reelected each time since then by large margins, usually with more than 60% of the vote. In 2008, Price received 63% to defeat Republican challenger B.J. Lawson, who received 37%. According to research by Christopher Ingraham of the Washington Post, the district is the third most gerrymandered Congressional district in North Carolina and seventh most gerrymandered district in the United States.
