John Edward Cunningham III (born March 27, 1931) is a former Republican U.S. Representative from Washington's seventh district. Prior to that, Cunningham served in the Washington House of Representatives from 1973–1975, and in the Washington Senate from 1975-1977.

Cunningham was elected as a Republican to the seventh district vacancy in a special election when U.S. Representative Brock Adams resigned to become Secretary of Transportation. However his victory in this extremely liberal district was more the result of confusion with Adams resignation. Cunningham lost reelection in 1978, and served from May 17, 1977 - January 3, 1979.
