2012 Congressional District Realignment[edit]

The Congressional Districts in Pennsylvania faced slight realignment for the 2012 election. Many sitting Congressional Representatives saw their districts modified or merged as part of the redistricting. An example of this would be the previous District Four (4) and Twelve (12). These two district saw major changes with the new realignment. The merger forced a primary runoff between the two sitting representatives in order to determine who would hold seat for the newly formed district.[1]
