James Vincent Stanton (born February 27, 1932) is an American politician. He was a U.S. Representative from Ohio.

Stanton was a member of the Cleveland city council from 1959 to 1970, serving as president from 1964 to 1970. He was then elected as a Democrat to the 92nd and to the two succeeding Congresses (January 3, 1971 – January 3, 1977).

Stanton was not a candidate for reelection to the House of Representatives in 1976, but was an unsuccessful candidate for nomination to the United States Senate. He supported the man who beat him in the primary, Howard Metzenbaum.

In the 2012 election, he endorsed Republican nominee Mitt Romney over his party's nominee President Barack Obama.[1]
