Ohio's 13th congressional district

The 13th congressional district of Ohio is represented by Representative Tim Ryan, who defeated Republican Dr. Marisha Agana of Warren on November 6, 2012. Due to reapportionment following the 2010 United States Census, Ohio lost its 17th and 18th congressional districts, necessitating redrawing of district lines. Following the 2012 elections, the 13th district changed to take in much of the territory in the former 17th district, including the city of Youngstown and areas east of Akron.

It was one of several districts challenged in a 2018 lawsuit seeking to overturn Ohio's congressional map as an unconstitutional gerymander.[4] According to the lawsuit, the 13th resembles a "jigsaw puzzle piece" that reaches out to grab the portion of Akron not taken in by the Cleveland-based 11th District.[5]

From 2003 to 2013 the district ran from Lorain to include part of Akron, also taking in the suburban areas in between.
