Doug Basler is challenging incumbent Adam Smith to represent Washington’s 9th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Smith has held this position since 1997.
The 9th Congressional District includes Bellevue, Mercer Island, much of South Seattle, Renton, and extends to Tacoma. After the redistricting of 2010, it became the state’s first majority minority district.
