Minnesota's 3rd Congressional District is one of the most affluent in the state, encompassing the suburbs of Hennepin County to the north, west, and south of Minneapolis. With blue collar Brooklyn Park and Coon Rapids to the north, middle-income Bloomington to the south, and higher-income Eden Prairie, Edina, Maple Grove, Plymouth and Wayzata to the West, it features a mixed characteristic. The district leans slightly Republican with a CPVI of EVEN.[3] However, 53% of people in the district voted for Barack Obama in 2008, equal to his share of the national popular vote. On September 17, 2007 Ramstad announced he would not seek reelection in 2008.[4] On November 4, 2008, Erik Paulsen defeated Ashwin Madia to replace Jim Ramstad.[5]
