The largest congressional district geographically in the state, the 5th District has been considered a Republican stronghold since the lines were redrawn in 2011, following the 2010 Census. The 2021 redistricting will either be done by Democrats or the courts and either outcome is likely to produce districts less skewed toward Republicans. Currently, the 5th district includes the eastern half of Henry County.
