Charlie Crist, Nikki Fried, Cadance Daniel, and Robert L. Willis, Democrat primary candidates for governor, amassed a tally of approximately 1.5 million votes in unofficial election night results.

In contrast, Republican agriculture commissioner candidates Wilton Simpson and James W. Shaw garnered approximately 1.6 million votes un official election night results.
