List of United States Representatives from Florida

This is an incomplete list of Members of the United States House of Representatives from Florida in alphabetical order.

Unlike many smaller states that generally have continuity in their districts when reapportioned every 10 years after the US Census, Florida has had too much demographic change to consider each district to be a continuation of the same numbered district before reapportionment. For example, while Dennis Ross, Adam Putnam and Charles T. Canady have represented the 12th District since 1993, they are often seen as "successors" of Andy Ireland not Tom Lewis since the current district and the previous 10th district were the Polk County districts designed to give this medium-sized district its own representative.
