Joe Garcia enters the District 25 race

Former Miami-Dade Democratic Chairman and (now) former Obama Administration Energy Department official is making another run for Congress in Miami-Dade’s District 25. He lost to incumbent Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart by a 53-47 margin in 2008, but District 25 is an open seat following Rep. Diaz-Balart’s decision to run in an adjacent district.

Garcia’s announcement speech, on YouTube, is here.

The Republican candidate is likely to be David Rivera, a well-funded incumbent state legislator.

The Herald’s political blog, Naked Politics, has lots more. My earlier thoughts on the race here.
