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.[5] 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.[6][7] Geographically, it is the successor to the old 25th District. This district includes Homestead, Key Largo, Marathon, and Key West. This district includes Florida International University and Key West International Airport. All three of Florida's National Parks, the Everglades, Biscayne, and the Dry Tortugas, lie in this district.

Republican Carlos Giménez currently represents the district.

Of these, 68% are Latino, 18% White, and 12% Black. Nearly half (49%) of the district's potential voters are immigrants.
