Diaz-Balart kicks off re-election campaign with a mayoral endorsement

Lincoln Diaz-Balart kicked off his re-election campaign Saturday with a luncheon at the Sheraton Mart Hotel and the endorsement of Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez.

The Miami Republican is facing his first significant re-election challenge in the form of former Hialeah Mayor Raul Martinez.

Diaz-Balart's campaign said Alvarez attended the luncheon and recognized Diaz-Balart's work on securing federal funding for Miami-Dade.

Diaz-Balart said he was honored by what he called "constant demonstrations of support" and said he would "continue working intensely to achieve a great victory in November."

Alvarez would appear to have a considerably easier election: His sole opponent is Helen Williams, a former teacher who reported raising $50 by the end of March, compared to the mayor's $720,000.

How much did UNCLE FIDEL and his secret agents donate?? I bet FIDEL has secretly been funding his nephews for years.

Does this clown Martinez really think he has a shot? No one in their right mind would vote for him.

Raul is a criminal. Funny he thought he would get the mayors support or at least a no endorsement sorry raul.
