Bipartisan Representatives in Partisan Districts

114th Congress First Session (2015)

The lists below show Congressional House members who earned a bipartisan ranking in 2015 (according to The Lugar Center's and McCourt School’s Bipartisan Index) but represent strongly partisan districts (according to the 2014 Cook Political Report's Partisan Voter Index). The 2014 Partisan Voter Index (PVI) determines the partisan composition of each district by comparing the 2012 presidential election outcome in every Congressional district to the national average. Districts with scores of at least D+6 or R+6 are deemed “strongly Democratic” or “strongly Republican," respectively.
