Rep. Ross Spano becomes 8th House incumbent to lose renomination

Rep. Ross Spano (R-Fla.) was defeated in his GOP primary on Tuesday, becoming the eighth House incumbent to lose a renomination bid this year — a historic high.

Spano, a freshman Republican who was hobbled by a Justice Department investigation into how he financed his 2018 campaign, was ousted by Lakeland City Commissioner Scott Franklin.

The eight current members of the House who have been felled in primaries and district conventions — five Republicans and three Democrats — is already twice the number who were defeated in the 2018 election cycle, as ideological and generational battles roil both parties. The last time eight House incumbents lost renomination outside a redistricting year was the Watergate-era 1974 primary season.
