Two incumbent Republicans easily kept their seats in the conservative Florida Panhandle.

With 92 percent of the vote in, U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., took 65 percent, besting Phil Ehr, the Democratic nominee and a retired Navy office, who pulled 33 percent. The rest of the vote went to attorney and Navy veteran Bert Oram who was running with no party affiliation.

Gaetz, one of President Donald Trump’s top allies on Capitol Hill, represents all of Escambia, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton Counties and part of Holmes County.

Running for a third term, U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn, R-Fla., took 93 percent of the vote with 92 percent of results in, enough to beat write-in candidate Kim O’Connor.
