Who’s running in District 22 Florida State Senate primary race?


The two Republican candidates running for state Senate District 22 shared their views on helping teachers, fighting for the community in Tallahassee, and stopping governmental corruption during a moderated discussion hosted by the Sarasota Tiger Bay Club Thursday.

Incumbent State Sen. Joe Gruters and Michael Johnson are facing off during the Aug. 23 primary election, and since no other candidates are running, any voter living in the district can vote. This means Democrats and Independents could sway who wins the seat, which covers Sarasota County and part of Manatee County.

Both candidates are running on Conservative platforms focused on uplifting small businesses, advocating for clean water, ensuring election integrity, and protecting all life.
