Nancy L. Johnson (born January 5, 1935) is an American politician.
Johnson has been a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives since 1983, representing first the 6th district and currently the 5th District of Connecticut (map) (following the elimination of the 6th district). She was born in Chicago, was educated at the University of Chicago, Radcliffe College and the University of London's Courtauld Institute. She was a teacher and a state senator (Connecticut Senate) before entering the House.
In 2002, the reapportionment process eliminated Connecticut's 6th District and forced a faceoff between Johnson and 5th District Democratic Congressman Jim Maloney. Johnson won by over 20,000 votes.
