Florida Gubernatorial Primaries
Republican Gov. Rick Scott is termed-out and running for U.S. Senate. This has led to a crowded primary field in both parties. On the GOP side, Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) and Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam are the leading candidates. DeSantis has been endorsed by President Trump multiple times, including on the eve of the primary. Trump's endorsement back in June gave a big boost to DeSantis, who has led just about every poll since, including some by double digits. However, a couple of the most recent polls have shown a much closer race, while other polling still shows DeSantis with a large lead. While DeSantis is likely to win, the margin will be interesting to watch.
For the Democrats, the most recent polling seems to favor former Rep. Gwen Graham, although Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine are each receiving significant support and can't be ruled out.
Going into the primaries, the general election is seen as a toss-up.
Florida Senate Primary
Sen. Bill Nelson is seeking a 4th term; he has no primary opposition. Gov. Rick Scott faces only nominal competition for the GOP nomination. The general election is seen as a toss-up, although Scott has had a small but consistent lead in recent polls. Democrats already have an uphill climb to take control of the Senate, it will be that much harder should they lose the race here.
Florida House Primaries
The state has 27 congressional districts. The GOP-held 26th and 27th districts in the very southern part of the state present good pick-up opportunities for Democrats in November. Both those districts were among 23 (before PA redistricting) that elected a Republican to Congress while voting for Hillary Clinton in 2016. In fact, these two gave Clinton her largest margin of all such districts. The 27th is particularly vulnerable, where 15-term incumbent Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is retiring. In addition to Ros-Lehtinen and DeSantis, Dennis Ross (FL-15) and Thomas Rooney (FL-17) are not seeking another term. Rooney's district is deep red, so whomever wins the GOP primary there is likely headed to Congress next year. Three first-term incumbents are facing serious primary challenges: GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL-01) and Democratic Reps. Al Lawson (FL-05) and Darren Soto (FL-09). Soto is being challenged by high-profile former Rep. Alan Grayson. These districts are also rated safe for the fall, so the winners tonight will be large favorites in the fall.
