Georgia's 9th congressional district is a congressional district in the north of the U.S. state of Georgia. The district has been represented since 2013 by Republican Doug Collins.

The district has a heavy Republican lean. Donald Trump carried the district with almost 78 percent of the vote in 2016, his fourth-best showing in the nation. With a Cook Partisan Voting Index of R+31, on paper it is the fourth most Republican district in the nation and the second most Republican district in the Eastern Time Zone. Since then-congressman and future governor Nathan Deal switched parties in 1995, no Democrat running in the district has crossed the 40 percent mark, and only one Democrat has won as much as 30 percent.

Republicans are no less dominant at the state and local level. Even as the district turned increasingly Republican at the national level, conservative Democrats still held most local offices well into the 1990s. However, after Deal's party switch, Republicans gradually eroded the Democratic advantage. Today, there are almost no elected Democrats above the county level. Republicans typically win with margins of well over 70 percent of the vote.

Much of this district was the 10th district from 2003 to 2007; it became the 9th once again in a mid-decade redistricting.

Collins announced in January 2020 that he will run for U.S. senator.[5]
