Daniella Levine Cava, Democrat Running for Miami-Dade Mayor, Raises $830,000 in One Month

For the past 15 years, Miami-Dade County has had Republican mayors. That could soon change: Due to term limits, Mayor Carlos Gimenez must bow out in 2020 and the sole Democratic candidate in the race says she raised more than $830,000 in the first month of her campaign.

Daniella Levine Cava, currently a county commissioner, announced her April fundraising total yesterday. According to the campaign, she attracted more money than any non-incumbent mayoral candidate in Miami-Dade has ever garnered in a single month.

"The grassroots enthusiasm and support that our campaign has received in just the first month is overwhelming we surpassed our goals and shattered expectations," Levine Cava said in a news release.

So far, only two candidates have entered the mayoral race: Levine Cava and Juan Zapata, a Republican former state representative and former Miami-Dade commissioner. According to the Miami Herald, however, a slew of established politicians, including Commissioner Esteban Bovo, Commissioner Xavier Suarez, former U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo, former Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera, and former Miami-Dade Mayor Alex Penelas, might also enter the race. Candidates have until June of next year to officially file to run.
