The new district created after the 2000 census brought incumbent Thomas C. Sawyer, who had been the incumbent in the 14th district, into the new 17th district. However, incumbent Sawyer (seen as anti-labor in a very blue-collar district) lost in the Democratic primary to Ryan, leaving Traficant the only incumbent in the race.
