South Florida Trifecta?

Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart isn’t the only Republican under attack in Miami-Dade County. Democrats are mounting an ambitious bid this year to try to take over the seats of three south Florida Republicans. Diaz-Balart’s brother Mario, who has represented the 25th District since 2003, has drawn a challenge from Joe Garcia, a Democratic strategist and former director of the Cuban American National Foundation. In the 18th District, Democrat Annette Taddeo, a Colombia-born business executive, is taking on Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
