Gwen Graham took 44 counties in defeat

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gwen Graham won 44 counties in Tuesday’s primary election but lost as nominee Andrew Gillum carried heavily populated Democratic strongholds, unofficial results show.

Graham, a former congresswoman from Tallahassee, dominated in rural counties and many mid-sized counties but won in only one of the eight most heavily populated counties — Pinellas. Gillum, meanwhile, won 18 counties, including voter-rich Broward, Duval, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange and Palm Beach counties.

In Broward, for example, Gillum beat Graham by a 37,500-vote margin; in Miami-Dade, he topped her by a 33,145-vote margin; and in Duval, he had a 21,719-vote margin. Statewide, Gillum defeated Graham by 47,043 votes, the results show.

The third-place candidate in the five-person race, former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, won five counties — Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades and Lee.
