Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District is entirely contained within Shelby County and includes the cities of Memphis and Millington.
In the southwest corner of Tennessee, Memphis is located on the banks of the Mississippi river and borders both Arkansas and Mississippi. Memphis is steeped in its rich Delta past, but has transformed itself into a 21st Century city and America's distribution center.
The largest city in Tennessee, and among the largest metropolitan areas in the South, Memphis is a bustling hub for both entertainment and business. Memphis is home to Regional One Health, the regional trauma center for Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi, and the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which conducts world-class cancer research and treatment. Home to FedEx, AutoZone, International Paper and several other Fortune 500 companies, Memphis is consistently ranked among the best places to conduct business. A center for higher education and research, the Ninth District boasts the University of Memphis, the University of Tennessee-Health Science Center, LeMoyne-Owen College, Rhodes College and Christian Brothers University. Due to its central location in the United States and its many business interests, Memphis’ International Airport handles more cargo than any other airport in the world. Memphis is also home to the University of Memphis Tigers, Memphis Grizzlies, and Memphis Redbirds.
