David Santiago (born December 14, 1970) is a Republican member of the Florida House of Representatives, representing the 27th District, which includes southern Volusia County, since 2012.


Santiago was born in Dover, New Jersey, and joined the United States Army Reserves after graduating from high school. He was discharged four years later and moved to the state of Florida in 1991 after his father-in-law gave him a house in Deltona as a wedding gift. Following his move, Santiago worked in insurance and real estate, and served on the Deltona City Commission from 2003 to 2007.

Florida House of Representatives

In 2012, the legislative districts were redrawn, and incumbent Republican primary, whom he easily defeated with 65% of the vote. In the general election, Santiago was initially set to face Dennis Mulder, the Democratic nominee and the former Mayor of Deltona. The Florida Democratic Party was targeting the district because it has a substantial registration advantage, but in August, Mulder abruptly dropped out of the race, citing his son's deteriorating health.[1] The Volusia County Democratic Party was forced to find a replacement, eventually voting to nominate their Chairman, Phil Giorno, who previously served as a member of the Volusia County Council, over DeBary Mayor Bob Garcia and former congressional candidate Nicholas Ruiz. Santiago declared, "The race hasn't changed. My campaign has never been about my opponent. It's about getting Florida back on track."[2] Ultimately, Santiago was elected over Giorno, winning his first term in the legislature with 55% of the vote to Giorno's 45%.
