For the first time ever, the Miami-Dade Democratic Party has filed candidates to challenge every single Republican State House Seat.
"It's time that Miami-Dade Republicans got the message: No more free rides," said chair Annette Taddeo-Goldstein.
Republicans in our state legislature have failed over and over again to tackle Florida's most pressing problems: Medicaid expansion, raising the minimum wage, and adequately funding our public education system, to name a few. Because of their inaction, over one million people will continue to suffer from lack of health insurance who would otherwise be covered under the federal expansion. Over 1.2 million Floridians must still struggle to make ends meet working for minimum wage, after Miami-Dade Republican state representative Carlos Trujillo refused to even hear debate on a bill to raise the wage.
Our candidates will run on these issues — and the message that it is time for a change of leadership in Tallahassee.
Meet all seven candidates after the jump.
