LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Incumbent Brian Hamman won the Lee County Commission District 4 primary, sending him to the November 4 general election.

After the results were final, Hamman told WINK News, "I feel great, this is the end of a year's worth of hard work to try and get to this point and it feels so good tonight to see those results on the screen and to see that we won." He adds, "just a quick call from Sawyer (Smith) he congratulated us on the race, I congratulated him on a hard-fought race, you know this is a great race between three very good candidates, I'm proud I was able to be in the race with these guys and I'm proud the voters chose us."

Now he heads to the general election in November to face Democratic candidate Debbie Jordan. "Tonight the voters clearly chose they want a fresh perspective on the board of Lee County Commissioners, I'm very proud of the work we did over the last 10 months and I'm gonna serve them well for the next four years."

Governor Rick Scott appointed Hamman to fill the remainder of Tammy Hall's term on county commission when she resigned after pleading guilty to misusing campaign funds.

Hamman finished with 45% of the vote, Sawyer Smith had 35% and Andy Coy came in third with 20%.
