List of members of the United States House of Representatives who lost re-election in a primary

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Elections for the United States House of Representatives are preceded by primary elections, in which the party's nominee for each congressional district is chosen by popular vote. Incumbent representatives often win renomination, although there are some instances of incumbents who lose to a primary challenge. In cases of redistricting, incumbents may run against each other in the same district.
