Jeb Bush backs Julio Robaina for mayor

There's too many endorsements to keep track of in the Miami-Dade mayoral race, but here's one of note: former Gov. Jeb Bush has thrown his support behind Hialeah Mayor Julio Robaina.

"Julio has a proven track record of cutting government waste and protecting our tax dollars," Bush said in a statement Robaina's campaign put out Monday morning.  "That's the type of leadership we need to reform county government, and I encourage you to join me in voting for Julio Robaina to be our next Mayor of Miami-Dade County."

We hear automated phone calls have been going out to voters with Bush's recorded voice endorsing Robaina.
