Gimenez Wins House Race in Florida; Republican Pickup

Bookmark

Republican Carlos Gimenez defeated first-term Democratic Representative Debbie Mucarsel-Powell in Florida’s 26th Congressional District, according to the Associated Press, flipping a seat that Republicans lost two years ago.

Gimenez, the mayor of Miami-Dade County, sought to tie Mucarsel-Powell to Washington liberals and label her a socialist in a district with a large number of Cuban Americans.
