Current Gubernatorial Scoreboard
Bottom Line

Governor Rick Scott is term-limited and eyeing the U.S. Senate leaving a wide open race with competitive primaries on both sides. The top contenders on the GOP side are Congressman Ron DeSantis and and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. DeSantis is a conservative Republican endorsed by President Trump while Putnam is generally considered an establishment Republican. The Democratic field is not as clearly defined.
