Pennsylvania's third district is located in the northwestern part of the state and includes the cities of Erie, Sharon, Hermitage, Butler and Meadville.

The district supported President George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004 as well as John McCain in 2008. Prior to redistricting in 2002, the district was located in Northeast Philadelphia and was represented by Rep. Robert Borski. Most of the territory in the current 3rd had been the 21st District before 2002.

Kathy Dahlkemper defeated six-term Republican incumbent Phil English in 2008. She herself was defeated after only one term in 2010 by Republican Mike Kelly, who currently represents the district.
