South Florida ex-Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Miami), who lost his seat 51-49% to current freshman Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-Miami) last November indicated yesterday during a trip to DC that he has not ruled out attempting to re-capture his former position. It had been a widely-held belief that Mr. Curbelo was planning to enter the Miami-Dade Mayor’s race, but apparently his plans are not yet solidified.
The state Supreme Court reconfigured the 26th District as a more Democratic seat in their mid-decade redistricting plan. Though Rep. Curbelo defied the odds and won re-election in his first attempt in the new district, he couldn’t hold it a second time in 2018. Mr. Curbelo returning to the House campaign would give Republicans their strongest potential candidate.
