Narain wins state House race to succeed Betty Reed

Another area primary was cancelled after a judge disqualified the write-in candidate and ordered the election postponed till November.

Incumbent state Rep. Jamie Grant had been set to take on challenger Miriam Steinberg in the Republican primary for House District 64 in eastern Pinellas and northwest Hillsborough. The winner would have faced write-in Daniel Matthews.

But a Tallahassee judge last month disqualified Matthews, finding he didn’t live in the district when he qualified. Matthews is appealing.

Meantime, a universal primary, in which all district voters can cast a ballot regardless of party affiliation, will be held Nov. 4 between Grant and Steinberg.
