Heading into the election the incumbent is Mike Pompeo (R), who was first elected in 2010.

Kansas' 3rd Congressional District is located in eastern Kansas and encompasses Wyandotte and Johnson counties, which includes the Kansas City Metropolitan Area and portions of Douglas County, which includes part of Lawrence.
