The elections for the United States House of Representatives in 2000 coincided with the disputed election of George W. Bush as President. The Republican Party narrowly lost seats to the Democratic Party, reducing their majority slightly to a bare nine seats.
This marked the third time in a row that Democrats gained on the majority Republicans.
This was the last congressional election that chose members from districts drawn based on the 1990 census.
