September 2022 Legislative Update

Legislative Update

We are less than seventy days out from the general election here in Florida and please anticipate your airways and mailboxes to be filled with appeals for your vote. Pro tip: If you vote early then the calls and mail will cease.

The primary election results are in but are not officially finalized on the Division of Election website. However, all the races have been decided.

If you are in the Tampa market, Karen Gonzalez Pittman won her crowded primary and has a general election candidate to overcome in order to make it to the Florida House. I know that any help you can give her would be greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately, Robyn Hattaway, lost her primary race although she won her home county. She lost in Volusia which had more voters.

In the closest loss of this election cycle, Rep Fetterhoff, lost her bid for re-election by 31 votes to Rep Barnaby in a very closely contested race between these two incumbents drawn through reapportionment into the same house seat. She has conceded her race.

Please make sure you all vote as you can see from my above remarks it is very important.

If you have any questions on your local races and who the FRS is supporting, please do not hesitate to contact me at

Happy Fall!
