Julio Robaina passes $1m mark in mayor's race

Julio Robaina has reported more than $1.2 million in the race for Miami-Dade mayor, according to campaign finance reports that were due Friday.

The latest numbers are not posted online yet for all of the candidates in Tuesday's special election. But Robaina again appears to lead the money field. Carlos Gimenez, considered Robaina's chief rival, has reported a war chest of $450,018.
