Rep. Darrin Camilleri was elected to his first term in November 2016 when he won out in a four-person Democratic primary with 35.7% of the vote. Later that fall, he defeated GOP nominee Bob HOWEY 50.3% to 59.67%.
In 2018, Camilleri earned a return trip to the House when he ran unopposed in the primary and defeated GOP nominee Michael FRAZIER 56.5% to 43.3%.
