Geoffrey C. "Geoff" Davis (b. October 26, 1958) was a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives representing Kentucky's 4th congressional district. Davis was first elected to the House in 2004 and he retired on July 31, 2012.

Davis initially announced he would retire at the end of his term rather than seek re-election, in 2012[1] In July, however, Davis announced his resignation, choosing not to finish out his term.[2][3][4]

Based on an analysis of bill sponsorship by GovTrack, Davis is a "rank-and-file Republican".[5]


Davis was born in 1958 in Montreal, Canada, to American parents, and attended high school in West Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He earned his B.S. from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and went on to serve in the Army through 1987. Outside of politics, he has also worked as a manufacturer and consultant.[6]
