Matt Gaetz shuts out Phil Ehr for third term

U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz won his bid for re-election Tuesday after a challenge from Democratic candidate Phil Ehr.

The Associated Press called the race for Florida’s 1st Congressional District in favor of Gaetz 13 minutes after polls closed at 7 p.m. The AP calls races based on exit polls and surveys of voters who voted early and analysis by elections experts.

Gaetz won the district, which includes the four counties of Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton, as well as parts of Holmes County, with 282,980 votes, 64.61%, over Ehr’s 148,948 votes, 34.01% with 100% of precincts reporting.

Ehr hoped to upset Gaetz in the Republican stronghold that is Florida’s 1st Congressional District, and his campaign highlighted Ehr’s military service and that he was a Republican before President Donald Trump was elected.
