The 1994 Florida gubernatorial election was held on November 8, 1994. Incumbent governor Lawton Chiles, a Democrat, survived a strong challenge from businessman Jeb Bush, a Republican, to win re-election. This race was the second-closest gubernatorial election in Florida history since Reconstruction due to the strong Republican wave of 1994.

Democrats held the Governor's Mansion until 1999. As of 2020, this is the most recent election in which a Democrat was elected Governor of Florida.
