2022 Florida congressional special election results
Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick has won a special election to fill the open seat in Florida’s 20th Congressional District, previously held by longtime Rep. Alcee Hastings (D) who died last April. To delay filling the seat — and cutting the party’s House margin by one — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) set the general election for Jan. 11. Cherfilus-McCormick won a primary — by only five votes —marked by frustration among the candidates at national Democrats and criticism of the Biden administration’s immigration policy.
Cherfilus-McCormick (D) is projected to win. 100 percent of precincts are reporting.
