Organizers prepare at Charlie Crist's primary election night event in St. Petersburg.

Here are the results of the U.S. House, and state House and Senate elections across the greater Tampa Bay region.

Anna Paulina Luna, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, won the Republican primary among a crowded field in Pinellas County's newly redrawn Congressional District 13.

Luna ran unsuccessfully against Charlie Crist two years ago for the seat, which now includes western St. Petersburg and southern Pinellas County.

The businesswoman and veteran will now face Democrat Eric Lynn, a former Pentagon official, in the November General Election.

In District 15, which includes northern Hillsborough, southern Pasco and northeaster Polk counties, former Florida Secretary of State Laurel Lee emerged as the frontrunner in a crowded field that also included state Sen. Kelli Stargel and state Rep. Jackie Toledo.

Laurel will face Alan Cohn in the November General Election.

Here are the results of U.S. House races in the Tampa Bay area, along with state Senate and House races across the greater Tampa Bay region.
