The only major city it contains is Muncie, but the suburbs of Indianapolis and Cincinnati make it so that 60% of the population lives in an urban area. This district was the most Republican district in Indiana in the 2016 presidential election: it voted for Trump by a margin of 40 points
Republican incumbent Luke Messer did not run for reelection in order to run of the Senate. The Republican nominee is Greg Pence, a businessman who is the brother of Vice-President and former Indiana governor Mike Pence. He will be running against Democrat Jeannine Lee Lake, a newspaper letter.
