Bill Gunter of New Port Richey easily won the GOP primary in the special election for House District 36. He now faces Democrat Amanda Murphy in the general election to see who will replace Mike Fasano.
Asked for a reaction to tonight’s results, Fasano congratulated both Gunter and Murphy. “I wish them both well in the upcoming October general election.”
In addition to the congratulatory note, Fasano had a more specific message.
“I would ask them to put the people of Pasco first and not the special interest of Tallahassee and the leadership of their respective party,” said Fasano. “I would also ask they run on their own merits and not use my name in their mailers and or TV commercials.”
