April Griffin
"My thanks to everyone would not be complete without a special shout out to Equality Florida donors and volunteers. Your tremendous support has allowed me to stand up to an opponent who sought to divide our community, to weaken our bullying policy and play politics with students' safety. "
Alex Sink
Sink won in a landslide with 76.69% and likely faces Rick Scott who is leading McCollum 46-43.

Tonight was a fantastic night for pro-equality candidates in Florida!

Dan Gelber, a long-time champion of LGBT civil rights, won the primary race to be the Democratic candidate for Attorney General. Equality Florida Action PAC was the first statewide organization to endorse Dan's candidacy. Check out his shout out to Equality Florida donors and volunteers.

In a close race, April Griffin won more than 48% of the votes in a 5 way race to retain her Hillsborough County School Board seat. As of 10:30pm it appears that far right activist Terry Kemple will NOT be heading to the runoff.

As expected, Alex Sink, our endorsed candidate for Governor, won the Democratic Primary with 76.69% of the vote.

In a tough loss, Justin Flippen is down 44.85% to 55.15% in his bid to become Florida's first out gay state legislator.

Justin took on the herculean task of challenging an incumbent -Gwyndolyn Clarke-Reed. Over 95% of incumbents in Florida are re-elected and Justin did a fantastic job, narrowly losing the race by an 8% margin.

Be on the lookout for your comprehensive Equality Florida Primary Election Results report tomorrow.
