Miami-Dade commissioner announces run for Ros-Lehtinen’s seat

MIAMI (WSVN) - Miami-Dade Commissioner Bruno Barreiro announced he’ll run for congress, Thursday, hoping to replace the retiring Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

Barreiro, who has served as a commissioner since 1998, will run to represent Florida’s 27th district.

Republican Ros-Lehtinen announced last weekend that she would not run for re-election in 2018.
