Republican D.C. Operatives May be Betting on a Losing Strategy
The Republican D.C. consultants pulled millions of dollars of TV advertising out of Mike Coffman’s race seat and gave it to Maria Elvira Salazar in Miami. Salazar is a broadcast reporter/anchor for Telemundo and Univision. She is attempting to hold a long-time Republican district that has been trending Democrat from Donna Shalala, the former Clinton cabinet member and former president of the University of Miami. Polls have Shalala up by about 5 points. Florida’s District 27 was represented by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a fierce anti-Castro Cuban, for 30 years. Obama and Clinton carried the district in 2012 and 2016, respectively.
