All around the Tampa Bay area, congressional seats are up for grabs on Nov. 8.

But, before General Election voters get in the game, party-affiliated voters must narrow down the field. They'll voice their choice on Aug. 23 in the state's closed Primary Election.

Several gathered for a community conversation — hosted by Spectrum Bay News 9's Holly Gregory, Rick Elmhorst and AARP — at St. Pete College's Seminole Campus.

Topics included inflation and the economy, housing, health care and gun safety.
