New Jersey's Ninth Congressional District is a district that consists largely of Bergen County municipalities. Due to redistricting following the 2010 Census, parts of the old 9th District were placed in other districts, such as the Fifth District and the new Eighth District, as part of a reduction in congressional districts from thirteen to twelve in New Jersey. The Ninth District is represented by Democrat Bill Pascrell, who resides in Paterson. Congressman Pascrell was first elected to Congress in 1996 defeating William J. Martini. Pascrell defeated former U.S. Representative Steve Rothman in the June 5, 2012 Democratic primary because Pascrell's hometown of Paterson was added to the Ninth District as part of the redistricting. Pascrell defeated Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, the Republican nominee, in the general election. (More from Freebase)
