Pennsylvania's 10th congressional district is located primarily in the northeast corner of the state. The district was one of the 12 original districts created prior to the 4th Congress. It is currently represented by Democrat Chris Carney, who defeated Republican incumbent Don Sherwood during the 2006 midterm elections. The 10th District experienced one of the greatest party shifts among all House seats that switched party control: in 2004, Sherwood won with an 86% margin of victory over his nearest opponent.[3]
