2008 United States House of Representatives elections in Rhode Island

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 2008 congressional elections in Rhode Island were held on November 4, 2008 to determine who will represent Rhode Island in the United States House of Representatives, coinciding with the presidential and senatorial elections. Representatives are elected for two-year terms; those elected will serve in the 111th Congress from January 3, 2009 until January 3, 2011.

Rhode Island has two seats in the House, apportioned according to the 2000 United States Census. Its 2007-2008 congressional delegation consisted of two Democrats, both of whom were re-elected in 2008. Thus, no districts changed party. CQ Politics forecasted both districts as "safe" for the incumbent party.
