According to the site, the average foreclosure rate is 0.47 percent in Democratic districts and 0.51 percent in Republican districts, and the median foreclosure rate is 0.15 percent in Democratic and Republican districts.

The congressional districts with the highest rate of foreclosures are represented by:

  • Dennis Cardoza, D-Stockton, Calif. (4.59 percent)
  • Mary Bono Mack, R-Palm Springs, Calif. (4.51 percent)
  • Jon Porter, R-Henderson, Nev., (4.45 percent)
