A Republican state representative from Fort Myers will face a Democratic lawyer from South Florida to become Florida's next agriculture commissioner.

Matt Caldwell defeated fellow GOP candidates Baxter Troutman, Denise Grimsley and Mike McCalister.

Nikki Fried won the Democrats nomination, defeating Jeff Porter and Roy David Walker.

The 37-year old Caldwell, whose family has a history in farming, was first elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2010 but is unable to run again due to term limits.

The 40-year old Fried helped lobby for medical marijuana legislation two years ago. Last week Wells Fargo shut down Fried's campaign account after she had "funds received from lobbyists from the medical marijuana industry."
