Former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala is the latest Democrat reportedly considering entering the crowded primary to battle to succeed retiring Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Miami). After leaving the Clinton Administration, Ms. Shalala became president of the University of Miami, a position from which she retired in 2015. Already eight Democrats are vying for the party nomination, including two state legislators and two local South Florida officials. Ms. Shalala would celebrate her 78th birthday soon after being sworn into office should she run and be successful in winning the seat.
