One of former Health & Human Services Secretary and University of Miami President Donna Shalala’s open congressional Democratic primary lead is falling according to one of her opponents who has released his own survey data. According to non-profit organization executive Matt Haggman’s RABA Research poll (8/2-5; 433 FL-27 likely Democratic primary voters) found Ms. Shalala leading the crowded group of five candidates with only 26% of the vote. Mr. Haggman was second at 16%, followed by state Rep. David Richardson (D-Miami), who has 15%. Miami Beach City Commissioner Kristen Rosen Gonzalez follows with 11%. Therefore, it appears this race is tightening as the candidates head toward the August 28th Florida primary. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Miami) is retiring.
