Round-up on last night’s primaries in Arizona and Florida

Yesterday’s primary night was an exciting one for Victory-endorsed candidates — with 11 of our 15 candidates advancing to the general election! All five of our Florida State House candidates won their primaries, which sets the stage for potentially quintupling LGBTQ representation in the Florida state House this November, an incredible opportunity given Florida continues to be a low-equality state for LGBTQ people. 
Here are the Victory-endorsed openly LGBTQ candidates who won their primary races in Arizona and Florida:
