Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera (R) announced yesterday that he will not become a candidate in the open south Florida congressional district. Mr. Lopez-Cantera had been a US Senate candidate in 2016 until Sen. Marco Rubio (R) decided to run for re-election. Once Rubio reversed his retirement plans, Lopez-Cantera deferred and withdrew from the race. The 27th is open because veteran Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Miami) is retiring after the current term. Democrats view this district at their best House conversion opportunity in the country.
