Wisconsin's 9th Congressional District

Wisconsin's 9th congressional district was a congressional district of the United States House of Representatives in Wisconsin. It was created following the 1870 Census along with the 8th district, and was disbanded after the 2000 Census. In its final incarnation, the district included most of the western and north-western suburbs of Milwaukee. It contained all of Washington and Ozaukee counties, most of Dodge and Jefferson counties, the northern and western halves of Waukesha county and the eastern parts of Sheboygan county, including the town itself.[1] It was usually the most Republican district in the state, voting 63% to 34% for George Bush over Al Gore at the 2000 election.[2] The district was also the longest in the state (as well as the last) to be represented by a member of the Wisconsin Progressive Party however, when the party briefly surged to dominate Wisconsin's politics during the 1930s, being represented by Merlin Hull for twelve years until 1947, when he switched to the Republican Party. At the time, the district covered much of the far western part of the state.
