Florida's 4th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of Florida. Since 2001, the residents of the 4th district have been represented by Republican Ander Crenshaw. This district takes in most of Jacksonville along with a long portion of North Florida.

The district includes all of Baker, Columbia, Hamilton, Madison, Nassau, and Union counties and portions of Duval, Jefferson, and Leon counties.

History

The district was originally created by the Florida Legislature in 1943 as the 2nd district. Democrat Charles Edward Bennett represented the district from 1948 to 1992. The district was renumbered as the 3rd district in 1967 and later as the 4th district in 1993.

Bennett chose to retire in 1993 rather than fight an intense re-election campaign against challenger Tillie K. Fowler in the 1992 House election. Fowler won the election and became the first Republican to represent the district. She held the position from 1993-2000.

Republican John McCain received 62 percent of the vote in this district in the 2008 presidential election.
