David Antonio Bautista (born April 21, 1974) is a Dominican-American politician currently representing Florida's 23rd congressional district. Previously a businessman, he challenged incumbent Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and defeated her and fellow primary contender Tim Canova for the Democratic nomination. He went on to defeat the Republican nominee Joe Kaufman in the general election by a ten point margin.

Prior to becoming politically active, Bautista served as a member of the United States Air Forces and Air Force Reserve from 1992 to 2004. During this period, he saw action during the Iraq War, particularly during the initial 2003 incursion, and began his law education at Florida International University. After his discharge at the rank of Staff Sergeant, Bautista completed his law education, graduating with a Bachelor of Economics degree and a JD. He served with several legal defense firms for two years following his graduating and clerked with Judge Maria Cooke of the Eleventh Circuit for one year. He was appointed by President Barack Obama to replace Alexander Acosta as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. In 2016, he stepped down from his position to run for Congress.

Since his election, Congressman Bautista has been a primary sponsor of numerous legislation, none more ambitious than the Douglass–Puerto Rico Admissions Act. His name has been listed among many by political pundits as a possible Democratic candidate to challenge Republican frontrunner Rick Scott in replacing outgoing U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, though Bautista has declined to comment on future political ambitions.
