In 1994, Scarborough was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives for Florida’s 1st congressional district, becoming the first Republican to represent the Florida Panhandle since Reconstruction. The seat had become open when eight-term Democratic incumbent Earl Hutto retired. In the general election, Scarborough defeated the Democratic candidate, Pensacola attorney Vince “Vinnie” Whibbs Jr., with 61 percent of the vote. Whibbs was the son of former Pensacola mayor Vince Whibbs. This district had not supported a Democratic candidate for U.S. president since 1960, however Democratic candidates had continued to hold most local offices well into the 1990s. Scarborough’s win coincided with a large Republican wave that allowed the Republicans to take the majority in the House for the first time in 40 years.
Scarborough was re-elected with 72 percent of the vote in 1996. In 1998 and 2000, he faced only write-in candidates as opposition.
