Voter’s guide to Miami-Dade’s nasty primaries includes candidates who pushed the 'gay' button

electionMiami Herald political writer Marc Caputo recaps the nastiness of this primary season and includes this nugget:

In the Republican primary to challenge Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, candidate Ozzie deFaria’s divorce and confrontation with his ex-wife’s husband became a campaign issue. DeFaria responded against rival Karen Harrington by noting she once attended a gay marriage.

Homosexuality became a campaign issue in the state House District 116 race between Rep. Jose Felix Diaz and Rep. Ana Rivas Logan. Allies of Logan accused Diaz of being gay. Diaz allies accused Logan of being Nicaraguan, a perceived slur in a Cuban-heavy district. Two write-ins closed that race to Republicans only.
