Three states are holding primary elections tonight. Oklahoma voters already went to the polls on June 28, but the state is now hosting a runoff in a primary where no one won a majority. New York also held statewide races, state legislature and primaries for local office that day, but because the courts redrew the maps for the U.S. House and state Senate, those nomination contests are now taking place. The Empire State will also hold special elections in the 19th and 23rd congressional districts.

We’re heading into the homestretch of the primary season, and tonight promises to be a big one, with U.S. House and state Senate primaries in the Empire State, runoffs in Oklahoma, and key Florida primaries. The old hats here at DK Elections know how fast Florida can count, so we’ll be rolling here real quick!

FL-04:We are already on the threshold in this open seat race that favors the GOP (53-46 Trump). On the Republican side, as expected, state Senator Aaron Bean is crushing the field with 68% of the vote. The Democratic side is very close, with businesswoman LaShonda Holloway leading former state legislator Tony Hill by a 54-46 margin.

FL-Gov:With early/VBM vote counts in several key counties (notably Broward and Pinellas), we’ve passed the threshold in this race, and the results aren’t too surprising. Republican Charlie Crist, a Republican and Democrat who served the state as both a Republican and a Democrat (who has, of course, run for office), held a 62-33 lead over state Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried. have done

FL-07:We hit the threshold in this seat, a Democratic open seat that the GOP later turned into a red seat (52-47 Trump). On the Republican side, veteran Corey Mills has a strong lead over state legislator (and far-right extremist) Anthony Sabatini (leads 49-21 in the multi-candidate field). On the Democratic side, it’s early, but Karen Green has established an early lead with 45% of the three votes.

FL-13 (R):In another gerrymander-assisted D-to-R flip (53-46 Trump), Rep. Charlie Crist’s former seat is likely to fall to the GOP. Right now, that primary is insane, with 2020 nominee (and Trump supporter) Anna Luna trailing attorney Kevin Hazlett by just a few tenths of a percentage point.

FL-04 (R):We have the first call of the night, as state senator Aaron Bean is announced as the winner by the AP. At last check, he was cruising with 70% of the vote in this open-seat primary.

FL-15:In perhaps the closest thing to a swing open seat (Trump 51-48) in the state, this central Florida district is currently held by Republican Laurel Lee (Kelly Stargell leads 43-24) and Democrat Alan Cohn (Joe Gavin Brown 36- are ahead with 21). As early leaders.

FL-20 (D):This rematch of a special election primary was not competitive at all, as Rep. Sheila Cherfils-McCormick is easily re-nominated.
Tuesday, August 23, 2022 · 11:24:36 PM +00:00 · Steve Singiser
FL-11 (R):It’s “wow” in the worst way: Far-right extremist Laura Loomer, who is so inflammatory she’s been banned from social media and other outlets, actually has a 49-47 lead over incumbent Republican Rep. Daniel Webster. is 29,000 votes were cast.

FL-27 (D): In the Miami-centered 27th, one of the most closely divided districts in the general election, it appears that state Sen. Annette Tadeo will be the Democratic candidate facing GOP freshman Maria Elvira Salazar. Taddeo leads Ken Russell 69-26 with 75% reporting.
Tuesday, August 23, 2022 · 11:37:19 PM +00:00 · David Jarman
FL-11 (R): It looks like we have one of the most dramatic races to watch in The Villages and its surrounding sprawling retirement village in Florida: incumbent GOP Rep. Daniel Webster has pulled ahead of Laura Loomer, now leading 49-47 after a surge in votes from the suburbs near Orlando, with 68% reporting.
Tuesday, August 23, 2022 · 11:39:41 PM +00:00 · David Jarman
FL-23 (D): An open seat race that wasn’t quite as dramatic is in the 23rd, where Democratic Rep. Ted Deitch has a streak of success. Jared Moskowitz, as expected, dominates the Dem primary in this dark-blue suburban district, leading Ben Sorensen 64-20.
Tuesday, August 23, 2022 · 11:43:34 PM +00:00 · David Jarman
FL-10 (D): There is another open seat race in the Orlando area, where the race Democratic Rep. Val Demings (currently running for Senate), has had two separate unsolicited blasts from the past: former Rep. Alan Grayson And Corinne Brown. However, they are back in third and fourth place; The current leader is gun safety activist Maxwell Frost, 34-25 in the state Sean Randolph Bracey (with Grayson, 16, and Brown, 10). The winner will face Gopher Calvin Wimbish in November in this light-blue district.

FL-Gov (D):Every county of considerable size and consequence that isn’t in the Central Time Zone has at least reported its early vote at this point, and the cake is feeling pretty much baked. Rep. Charlie Crist still holds a 60-35 lead over Nikki Freud.
Wednesday, August 24, 2022 · 12:02:04 AM +00:00 · Steve Singiser
FL-Gov (D):And there it is. Microseconds after the polls closed in the Central Time Zone, AP reported Rep. (and former governor!) called the Democratic primary for governor in favor of Charlie Crist. He will face incumbent Republican Ron DeSantis in November.
Wednesday, August 24, 2022 · 12:10:13 AM +00:00 · Steve Singiser
FL-11 (R):Well, it’s still disturbingly close in Central Florida, but there’s a caveat. Far-right extremist Laura Loomer is still the incumbent Rep. Dan Webster is leading, but the margin is only up to 81 votes (out of over 58,000 cast!). Also, the vote count doesn’t show anything yet in Orange County, where Webster should theoretically do the best. So watch this race…it’s the closest race in the Sunshine State tonight.
Wednesday, August 24, 2022 · 12:14:30 AM +00:00 · Steve Singiser
FL-11 (R):So, the Florida results site is well ahead of the media tallies, and they likely have the Orange County totals (their vote total is 83,000 votes, as opposed to 58,000 on the media sites). Despite having a much larger upset than Laura Loomer (51-44), Rep. Dan Webster is also ahead. In terms of raw votes, that’s a lead of 5200 votes, which will almost certainly be more than Loomer.

FL-01:The Panhandle is now reeling, and Rep. Matt Gaetz has a substantial lead over Mark Lombardo (64-29). Lombardo, for those who haven’t seen the news, began running ads late in the campaign where he questioned Gaetz’s loyalty to Donald Trump, even hinting that he might be the informant who tipped Trump off. And the FBI was sissified. You cannot legitimately create these things. Alas, it didn’t work out for Lombardo, as he is working in early voting.
Wednesday, August 24, 2022 · 12:21:25 AM +00:00 · Steve Singiser
FL-13 (R):What was once a tight battle in this Tampa/St. The Pete area district has widened considerably, with 2020 nominee Paulina Luna now leading Kevin Hazlett 44-34. Luna, who came close to incumbent Charlie Crist as an underdog in 2020, will be the betting favorite over Democrat Eric Lynn in this heavily drawn new district.
Wednesday, August 24, 2022 · 12:22:57 AM +00:00 · Steve Singiser
FL-11 (R):It was closer than many thought, but the AP announced that incumbent Rep. Dan Webster has hung on to this central Florida district, despite originally losing to incumbent Laura Loomer in the district’s infamous The Villages area (Sumter County).
