Missouri's first congressional district is in the eastern portion of the state. It includes all of St. Louis City and much of northern St. Louis County, including the cities of Maryland Heights, University City, Ferguson and Florissant. The district is easily the most Democratic in Missouri, with a Cook Partisan Voting Index of D+29; the next most Democratic district in the state, the Kansas City-based 5th, has a PVI of D+7.[2] It is roughly half African-American.

Its current representative is Democrat William Lacy Clay Jr., who was elected in 2001. Clay's father, Bill Clay, had previously represented the district for over 30 years. Cori Bush, a progressive Democrat and leader in the Ferguson protests, beat Clay in the August 4, 2020 primary. Bush lost the same primary in 2018 by 20 points to Clay.[3]
