Another possible challenger for David Rivera?

Politico is reporting that Democrat Annette Taddeo -- who ran a failed campaign against U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen in 2008 and an unsuccessful bid for an open Miami-Dade County Commission seat last year -- is considering challenging U.S. Rep. David Rivera.

Taddeo, a Colombian-American businesswoman, is the second Democrat reportedly mulling over a run for the seat. Democrats also have their eye on state Rep. Luis Garcia, a retired Miami Beach fire chief.

Neither Taddeo nor Garcia live in Rivera's western Miami-Dade district, which also includes portions of eastern Collier County. Those boundaries are likely to change in redistricting next year -- but possibly not enough to include Pinecrest (Taddeo's home when she ran for Congress last time) and certainly not Miami Beach.

Last year, Taddeo attempted to replace County Commissioner Katy Sorenson, who retired. But despite raising the most money in the race, Taddeo didn't even make the runoff. (The ultimate winner of the race was now-Commissioner Lynda Bell.)
