Elections to the United States House of Representatives in Florida were held for two seats in the 53rd Congress. These elections were held at the same time as the 1892 presidential election and election for Governor.

Background[edit]

Florida's congressional delegation had been dominated by Democrats since 1884, with the Republicans losing every Congressional election since then. In 1890, a new party, the People's Party, also known as the Populists, had been established, winning nine seats in the House.

Election results[edit]

The Republicans did not run any candidates for Congress in 1892. The new People's Party made its first appearance in Florida's congressional elections this year. Robert Bullock (D) of the 2nd district did not run for renomination.
