About

From Wikipedia

The largely white district was aligned with the Democratic Party well into the 20th century, when Virginia was among the Solid South states and African Americans were disenfranchised. Its voters have had a strong social conservative bent, and since the 1990s have increasingly voted for Republican presidential candidates. It last supported a Democrat for president in 1996, and has supported a Democrat in only two statewide contests since then.

Republican presidential candidate John McCain received 59% of the vote in the 9th district in 2008, his best performance in any of Virginia’s eleven congressional districts. The 9th District is the only district in Virginia that cast more votes for Hillary Clintonthan Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic Presidential Primary. Clinton won more than 60% of the vote; local Congressman Rick Boucher endorsed Obama.
