Missouri's 7th congressional district consists of Southwest Missouri. The district includes Springfieldmarker, the home of Missouri State University (formerly known as Southwest Missouri State University), and the popular tourist destination city of Bransonmarker. Located along the borders of Kansasmarker, Oklahomamarker, and Northwest Arkansasmarker, the district takes in a huge chunk of the Bible Belt, making it the most Republican district in the state with a strong socially conservative trend. George W. Bush defeated John Kerry 67% to 32% in Election 2004.

The district is currently represented by Roy Blunt (R-Springfield) who will be vacating the seat in 2010 to seek the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Republican Kit Bond.
