|Indiana's 4th congressional district|
|Area||4,016.44 sq mi (10,402.5 km2)|
Indiana's 4th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of Indiana. From 2003 to 2013 the district was based primarily in the central part of the state, and consisted of all of Boone, Clinton, Hendricks, Morgan, Lawrence, Montgomery, and Tippecanoe counties and parts of Fountain, Johnson, Marion, Monroe, and White counties. The district surrounded Indianapolis including the suburban area of Greenwood and encompassed the more exurban areas of Crawfordsville and Bedford, as well as the college town of Lafayette-West Lafayette.
From the 2012 redistricting, the district shifted slightly north and west to include the Illinois border, while losing the eastern Indianapolis suburbs. It currently includes Crawfordsville, Lafayette, the western Indianapolis suburbs, and portions of Kokomo.
The district is currently represented by Republican Jim Baird, who succeeded Todd Rokita, who vacated his House seat to run for the Indiana U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Joe Donnelly, losing the Republican nomination to eventual senator Mike Braun. Baird was elected on November 6.
Prior to the 2000 U.S. Census, most of the territory currently in the 4th Congressional District was located in the 7th Congressional District; the old 4th Congressional District was the Fort Wayne district, which is now the 3rd Congressional District.
