Mitt Romney to campaign with Miami congressional candidate Carlos Curbelo next week


Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney plans to campaign Monday in Miami with congressional candidate Carlos Curbelo.

Romney lost the vote in Florida's 26th congressional district to President Barack Obama by 7 percentage points in 2012. The district extends from Westchester to Key West.

Yet Romney's still a big name in GOP circles, and he's the latest Republican establishment member to endorse Curbelo, a Miami-Dade School Board member who's in a five-way primary to challenge Democratic Congressman Joe Garcia. The others running are Cutler Bay Mayor Ed MacDougall, former County Commissioner Joe Martinez, attorney Lorenzo Palomares-Starbuck and former Congressman David Rivera.

Curbelo and Romney are scheduled to visit a West Kendall bakery Monday afternoon.
