Florida's 5th Congressional District comprises all of Citrus County, Hernando County, and Sumter County, most of Lake County, Levy County, and Pasco County, and portions of Marion County and Polk County. The district includes northern exurbs of Tampa and western exurbs of Orlando within the high-growth Interstate 4 Corridor. Brooksville Republican Ginny Brown-Waite has represented Florida's 5th Congressional District since 2003. John McCain received 56% of the vote in the district in 2008.

In 2002, Ginny Brown-Waite won election over incumbent Karen Thurman by a narrow margin in one of a handful of close races that cycle. In 2004, Brown-Waite won reelection over Hernando County attorney and Naval Reservist[1] Robert Whittel with 66% of the vote. In 2006, she cruised to re-election for a third full term against poorly funded challenger John Russell of Dade City with 59% of the vote.
