Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen’s (R-Miami) surprise retirement announcement has caused South Florida politicos to re-think their options for 2018. State Sen. Anitere Flores (R) and state Rep. Jeanette Nunez (R) both say they will consider running for Congress after the state legislative session ends this year. Former Miami-Dade School Board member and daughter of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado, Raquel Regalado, is also a potential Republican candidate. While Democrats already have four announced candidates, stronger political figures are expected to enter the race. State Sen. Jose Javier Rodriguez and Miami Beach City Manager Jimmy Morales are two Democratic potential candidates.
