Bay County Commissioner Griff Griffitts and newcomer Brian Clowdus are vying for the House District 6 seat, which is up for grabs with the departure of term-limited Rep. Jay Trumbull, who is running for state Senate.
Griffitts has been endorsed by Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis and longtime Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford. Clowdus, an Alabama native, moved to the Panhandle area in 2020. He quickly became involved in politics, knocking on doors in support of former President Donald Trump.
No Democrats filed to run for the HD 6 seat, so the Aug. 23 Primary Election will be a winner-takes-all contest.
