Florida's 4th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of Florida. The district takes in most of Jacksonville along with a portion of North Florida. The district includes all of Baker and Nassau counties and portions of Duval County.


The district is currently represented by Republican Ander Crenshaw.

History

Before 1993, most of the territory now in the 4th district was the 3rd district, represented by Democrat Charles Edward Bennett. He had held the seat and its predecessors since 1949, and was facing a stiff reelection contest against Republican Tillie K. Fowler in the 1992. Bennett retired after his wife fell ill, and Fowler easily defeated an underfunded replacement candidate. She became the first Republican woman to represent the district.

From 1967 to 1993, the 4th district stretched from the southern Jacksonville suburbs to the northern Orlando suburbs. Much of this area became the 7th District after redistricting, and is now the 6th District.
