Wisconsin's 4th congressional district is a congressional district of the United States House of Representatives in Wisconsin, encompassing a part of Milwaukee County and including all of the city of Milwaukee and its working-class suburbs of Cudahy, St. Francis, South Milwaukee, and West Milwaukee. Recent redistricting has added the Milwaukee County North Shore communities of Glendale, Shorewood, Whitefish Bay, Fox Point, Bayside, and Brown Deer to the district. It is currently represented by Gwen Moore, a Democrat.

In the 21st century this has been the most Democratic congressional district in Wisconsin. John Kerry won 69% of the vote here in 2004. Barack Obama also swept the district in 2008 by a three-to-one margin over John McCain with 75.39% of the vote to McCain's 23.61%.

Before the 2000 census, the 4th covered much of south Milwaukee, and extended into eastern Waukesha County. After Wisconsin lost a district in the 2000 census, the 4th was cut back to a Milwaukee County district.
