Homestead Election Fallout
According to Political Cortadito, two names have surfaced as potential challengers to Miami-Dade County Commissioner Lynda Bell:
Former State Rep. Ana Rivas-Logan
One of them is former State Rep. Ana Rivas-Logan, who lost a bitter and ugly Republican primary last year for a redrawn house seat that threw her in with State Rep. Jose Felix Diaz. She confirmed that to Ladra Wednesday morning that she was being pursued for the county seat.
“I am being strongly encouraged to consider running,” Rivas-Logan told me. And you can tell she is aching to go back to public office, but not at the state level. “I do better in non-partisan races. I’m too moderate for a partisan race.”
PC also claims the Dade Democratic party is actively recruiting a candidate for the nonpartisan race.
