Minnesota's 4th congressional district covers nearly all of Ramsey County, and part of Washington County. It includes all of St. Paul and most of its suburbs. The district is solidly Democratic with a CPVI of D + 14.[6] It is currently represented by Betty McCollum, of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (DFL). The DFL has held the seat without interruption since 1949, and all but one term (1947-9) since the merger of the Democratic and Farmer-Labor Parties.
