Broward County Commissioner Barbara Sharief (D), who is ineligible to seek re-election to her local post in 2022, yesterday filed a congressional committee with the Federal Election Commission for the 20th District. With reapportionment likely to award Florida two new seats and redistricting to significantly change the state’s congressional district boundaries, it is likely that she will have other options for a South Florida Democratic seat rather than challenging veteran Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Delray Beach). For now, however, it appears that we have a budding Democratic primary battle.
