State House candidate picked up on DUI charges

A candidate vying to represent a large section of Miami and Miami Beach in Tallahassee was arrested over the weekend on a charge of driving under the influence, according to Miami-Dade County corrections records.

Christopher Norwood, 35, an attorney and community activist running for the state House seat in District 109, was booked into the county jail Sunday morning after he was stopped by police as he drove north in the 300 block of Ocean Boulevard in Golden Beach, officials said. More here.

''We expected a heated race with a guaranteed run-off. This is very popular seat,'' said Dorothy Jackson, president of the Ron Brown South Dade Democratic Caucus, which recently hosted a forum with most of the District 109 candidates, including Norwood.

Someone needs to educate Ms. Jackson, there is no run-off. That was removed years ago.
