Winners in other key Florida congressional primaries



Florida had a number of spirited primaries that were settled tonight.

District 2: Neal Dunn narrowly defeated Mary Thomas in what was a nasty GOP primary for the seat currently held by Democrat Gwen Graham, who chose not to run becuase the district became more solidly Republican.

District 9: Darren Soto beat Dena Grayson, wife of Alan Grayson, as well as Susannah Randolph for the Democratic nomination.

District 10: Val Demings easily won, dispatching Geraldine Thompson and Bob Poe for the Democratic nomination.

District 18: Brian Mast beat Rebecca Negron, wife of incoming Florida Senate president Joe Negron, in the GOP primary.

District 19: Francis Rooney scored a big win over Chauncey Goss and Dan Bongino for the GOP nomination and an all-but-certain trip to Congress.

District 26: Joe Garcia narrowly beat Annette Taddeo in the Democratic primary and will take on REpublican incumbent Carlos Curbelo in what should be a tight race.
