Florida's 11th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of Florida. It was reassigned in 2012, effective January 3, 2013, from the Tampa area north to four other counties: Sumter County, Citrus County, Hernando and central Marion County, as well as the far northwestern corner of Lake County.[6][7] The district includes southern Ocala, Bushnell, and Spring Hill. The Villages, a large retirement and golfing community for seniors, is situated in this district, aiding Republican and Democratic candidates in the district and statewide.[8]

From 1993 to 2013, the former 11th district had encompassed most of the city of Tampa and its suburbs and the shoreline of southeastern Hillsborough County. It also included two areas in other counties: urban neighborhoods of south St. Petersburg in Pinellas County and neighborhoods in and around Bradenton in Manatee County. Most of that district is now the 14th district, while the current 11th is the successor of the old 5th district.

The district is currently represented by Republican Daniel Webster.

Historical district boundaries[edit]

Over 3 decades earlier, from 1983 to 1993, the district was based in Brevard County, including the Kennedy Space Center. In 1986, weeks before the Challenger disaster, the district's then-congressman, Bill Nelson, (who later served as U.S. Senator from Florida from 2001 to 2019, and has been NASA Administator since 2021) flew on board the Space Shuttle Columbia as part of mission STS-61-C.

From 1993 to 2013 the district was based in Tampa plus the shoreline of Tampa Bay; the city's long-serving congressman Sam Gibbons retired in 1997 after nearly 35 years in the House.
