Results showed Dunn getting 74 percent of the vote.
Although Salzberg's name was on the ballot, his candidacy effectively ended Aug. 31 when a judge ordered him to spend at least six months in a state mental hospital.
He was ruled to be legally insane for attacking a police officer March 17 after being ordered to leave the Police Department's lobby.
Dunn now faces incumbent Republican Dan Miller in the November general election. Miller, 58, had no opposition in the primary and is seeking his fifth term as a U.S. representative.
Dunn, 44, said he understands the needs of the working and retired poor. He would use the budget surplus to pay off the national debt, bolster the Head Start program and come up with a prescription drug plan for Medicare.
"Congress is all millionaires," he said. "I work daily with senior citizens who need prescription drug assistance or rental help just to get through the month."
U.S. House District 13 includes south Hillsborough County and parts of Manatee and Sarasota counties.
