On Tuesday night, Daniella Levine Cava finished in the top two contenders, advancing to the November runoff election to challenge Esteban Bovo. This is a major win for Levine Cava, and for Florida Democrats.
Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement on Cava’s success:
“The Florida Democratic Party is proud to endorse Daniella Levine Cava for Mayor of Miami Dade County. Daniella is a lifelong public servant and has been a tireless advocate for the residents of South Florida throughout her career. From building efficient and effective county-wide transit, to solving the affordability crisis and preparing for sea level rise, she is ready to lead Miami Dade on day one.
“We are looking forward to working with Daniella to flip the Miami Dade County mayoral seat blue and we are excited to watch her make history in Miami-Dade as the first woman mayor of the most populous county in our state.”
