Florida Elections 2018: Kathy Lewis wins Democratic primary to face Tom Lee

Florida State Senate District 20: Kathy Lewis has released the following statement about her victory on August 28th:

I’m so honored to be the Democratic nominee for Florida State Senate District 20. I want to thank everyone who supported my campaign. I also want to thank everyone who took the time to vote – whether you voted at the polls today, voted early, or voted by mail. It’s so crucial that each of us make our voice heard. Finally, I want to thank my opponent Joy Gibson for stepping up to run.

I’m looking forward to spending the next 70 days talking to the voters in District 20 about the issues that matter most to them.  This is our time, and this is our year, to make a change and put someone in this seat who will work for families, not special interests.

More on Kathy in the clip below, recorded ahead of the primary.

Lee is a longtime Hillsborough County politician who served 10 years in the Senate from 1996 to 2006, and then was Senate president from 2004 to 2006. Facing a term limit, he then ran unsuccessfully for state chief financial officer.

He ran for the Senate again in 2012 and was re-elected in 2016 to a term of only two-years because of redistricting.

We will be reaching out for a followup with both candidates.
