The Second Congressional District of Ohio is a district in southern Ohio. It is currently represented by Jean Schmidt.

The district stretches along the Ohio River from the Hamilton County suburbs of Cincinnati east to Scioto County. It is the 57th most Republican district in the nation by the reckoning of the Cook Political Report and includes all of Adams, Brown, Pike, and Clermont counties and parts of Hamilton, Scioto and Warren counties. Among Ohio's districts, only the 4th District is considered to be more Republican.

It includes all of the Warren County municipalities of Lebanon, South Lebanon, Loveland (also in Hamilton and Clermont Counties), Maineville, Morrow, Butlerville, and Pleasant Plain, and parts of the municipalities of Mason and Blanchester. All of Union, Hamilton, Harlan, Salem, and Washington Townships are in the district, as well as parts of Turtlecreek Township immediately adjacent to the city of Lebanon, and southern Deerfield Township. The Hamilton County municipalities of Sharonville, Blue Ash, Deer Park, Loveland, Madeira, Montgomery, Newtown, Terrace Park, and Indian Hill are in the district, along with eastern parts of Cincinnati. All of Anderson and Symmes Townships and parts of Sycamore Township and the city of Springdale are also in the district.

The last Democrat to win a full term in this district was John J. Gilligan in 1964 and the district (known as the first district before 1982) has been in Republican hands for all but nine years since 1879. Portman won the seat in a 1993 special election with 77 percent of the vote and in six subsequent campaigns never received less than 70 percent.
