Campaign cash flows in legislative races with competitive primaries

TALLAHASSEE — For a handful of candidates eying the state House and Senate, it’s August 26 — not November 4 — that matters most.

The August primary will determine the outcome of two South Florida races: House District 94 in central Broward County and House District 107 in northern Miami-Dade County. Because no other candidates are running in November, the winner of the Democratic primary in each race will win the seat.

In the Senate, the District 36 primary winner is all but certain to join elected colleagues in Tallahassee because only a long-shot write-in candidate is on the ballot in November.
