Florida's 11th congressional district encompasses most of the city of Tampa and its suburbs and the shoreline of southeastern Hillsborough County. It also includes two areas in other counties: urban neighborhoods of south St. Petersburg in Pinellas County and neighborhoods in and around Bradenton in Manatee County.

It is currently represented by Democratic U.S. Representative Kathy Castor.

The 11th district leans more Democratic than the surrounding areas. Though Hillsborough County twice voted for George W. Bush, the 11th district went for Al Gore and John Kerry. Barack Obama received 66% of the vote in this district in 2008.
