Florida's 26th congressional district is an electoral district for the U.S. Congress, which was created in South Florida during 2012, effective January 2013, as a result of the 2010 Census.[1] The first candidates ran in the 2012 House elections, and the winner was seated for the 113th Congress on January 3, 2013.

The 26th district is located in far South Florida, and contains all of Monroe County as well as a portion of south-west Miami-Dade County.[2][3] David Rivera, the incumbent Congressman from the 25th district faced Democrat Joe Garcia in a re-match of the 2010 election. Garcia won the election and assumed office in January 2013.
