In the race to succeed Miami Sen. Alex Villalobos, Republican reps David Rivera and Anitere Flores are raking in the cash. Rivera, though, is raking in far more of it: $336,000 last quarter. Flores pulled in $153,000.
Conventional wisdom: Flores will make the race extremely competitive with half the cash. But if the current trends hold (and the conventional wisdom is right), then Rivera's in great shape. His cash on hand: $718,000. Hers: $304,000.
