Three incumbent state attorneys staved off challengers while one incumbent public defender was defeated as 10 primaries for state attorney and public defender offices were decided by Florida voters in the August 18 primary.
All results are unofficial tallies from the Secretary of State’s Division of Elections website.
Long-time 11th Circuit State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle fended off a challenge in the Democratic primary from Melba V. Pearson, 61.5% to 38.5%. It’s her seventh election win since assuming the post in 1993. No other candidates filed, so all voters regardless of party affiliation were able to vote.
