Wisconsin's 8th congressional district is a congressional district of the United States House of Representatives in northeastern Wisconsin. The district includes Green Bay and Appleton. It is currently represented by Mike Gallagher, a Republican. Gallagher won the open seat vacated by Reid Ribble. It is also one of two Congressional Districts to ever elect a Catholic Priest, Robert John Cornell.

The 8th leaned Republican for several years; only four Democrats represented it in the 20th century. However, it has become more of a swing seat since the 1990s. In 2004, Republican George W. Bush won 55% of the vote in the district, while in 2008, Democrat Barack Obama received 53.6% of the vote.
