Arkansas's 4th congressional district is a congressional district located in the southwestern portion of the U.S. state of Arkansas. Notable towns in the district include Camden, Hope, Hot Springs, Magnolia, Pine Bluff, and Texarkana.

The district is currently represented by Republican Bruce Westerman.

Historically, the district has supported conservative Democrats such as Mike Ross and David Pryor, and was reckoned as a classic Yellow Dog Democrat district. However, the growing Republican trend in the state has overtaken the district since the start of the 21st century with the district supporting George W. Bush with 51% in 2004 and support grew as John McCain won the district in 2008 with 58% of the vote.
