Following a spirited debate that included all five Republican candidates, a straw poll was held and James Grant was the decisive winner. Asked about the debate, Grant responded:

“The Tampa Republican Club deserves a lot of credit for their involvement in this process and I’m thankful for their interest in this race.  Last night they gave the people of District 47 an opportunity to hear from all of the candidates in this primary and a chance to make their own decision. In the end, the people voted for a conservative voice who is willing to go to Tallahassee and fight for limited government that is both responsible and efficient.  I am humbled to have their support.”
