This was an open seat, as Democratic incumbent Marion Berry retired.

Berry had always been reelected in this district by a wide margin since his first reelection campaign in 1998, and was unopposed in 2008. The district was very Republican (giving only 38% to Obama) on a national level despite a long history of electing Democrats to local and state level offices.
