The 10th Congressional District of North Carolina is a Congressional district in central and western North Carolina. It currently includes all of Cleveland, Gaston, Lincoln and Rutherford counties, and part of Catawba, Iredell, and Buncombe counties.

Republicans have won the district continuously since 1969. Republican Patrick McHenry has represented the district since 2005. Jeff Gregory (D) was defeated in the 2010 election to represent this district. The 10th district was part of the controversial statewide redistricting by the Republican-led state legislature in 2011.[2] The district's northwest border was re-drawn to include the Asheville urban area.
