TALLAHASSEE, Florida: On August 26, Florida voters faced three contested state executive primary fields and selected Democratic nominees for governor and attorney general as well as the Republican nominee for governor. With 99 percent of precincts reporting, the results show GOP incumbent Rick Scott and recently-converted Democrat Charlie Crist easily securing their respective parties' nominations for governor, while George Sheldon overcame one opponent in the Democratic attorney general primary for the chance to challenge incumbent Pam Bondi (R) in the general election.[1]

The five state executive positions are up for election in 2014 in the state of Florida in 2014 - governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, chief financial officer and agriculture and consumer services commissioner - are all held by Republicans, and each of the five incumbents are seeking re-election this cycle.

Below, Ballotpedia has put together a review of the August 26 primary elections in Florida, including the unofficial vote totals and a peek ahead at the upcoming general election lineups.

PHOENIX, AZ: On August 26, Arizona voters faced seven contested state executive primary fields, two of which resulted in the early elimination of incumbents. Attorney General Tom Horne and Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal, both Republicans first elected to their posts in 2010, lost their bids for renomination yesterday, bringing the number of open state executive seats to a whopping seven.[2]

With five of the six remaining sitting officeholders either term-limited or not running for a second term in their current posts, incumbent State Mine Inspector Joe Hart will be the only executive incumbent to appear on the November election ballot.

Eight state executive positions are up for election in 2014 in the state of Arizona: governor, attorney general, secretary of state, state treasurer, state mine inspector, superintendent of public instruction and two seats on the state corporation commission. Republican primaries were held for all of the offices except state mine inspector. A single contested Democratic primary, for superintendent of public instruction, determined that David Garcia will represent the party on the November ballot against GOP nominee Diane Douglas, who unseated incumbent John Huppenthal.

Montpelier, Vermont: The 2014 Vermont primary elections were held on August 26, 2014. Democrats voted in two contested primaries, while Republicans had one primary contest.

Both opposed Democratic incumbents won re-nomination easily, with Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin and Vermont Attorney General Bill Sorrell defeating Brooke Paige, a Republican running in both Democratic primaries.[4] Three candidates contested the Republican primary for governor, with Scott Milne emerging the clear winner in the night's most open race.

One Republican incumbent, Vermont Lieutenant Governor Phillip Scott, and three Democratic incumbents, Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos, Vermont Treasurer Elizabeth Pearce and Vermont Auditor Doug Hoffer, won re-nomination in unopposed primaries.

Below, Ballotpedia reviews the primary results and introduces the third-party and independent candidates who will be joining the primary contest winners in the November general election.
