The 2010 Pennsylvania 7th congressional district election was an election held to determine who would represent Pennsylvania's 7th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives during the 112th Congress. The district was based in the western and northwestern suburbs of Philadelphia. It included the majority of Delaware County, and portions of Chester and Montgomery counties.

Incumbent Democratic U.S. Congressman Joe Sestak retired to run for the U.S. Senate, leaving an open seat. The district was Democratic-leaning as Obama carried the district with 56% of the vote and it had a PVI of D+3, but Republican Pat Meehan ended up winning the general election on Nov 2, 2010 by a 55% to 44% margin over Democrat Bryan Lentz.
