WASHINGTON Donna Shalala may be in trouble.
Shalala, a Democrat running in a district that President Donald Trump lost by nearly 20 percentage points in 2016, is trailing Republican TV journalist Maria Elvira Salazar by 2 percentage points in a Mason Dixon-Telemundo poll. The independent polls margin of error was 4 percentage points and included a pro-Trump non-party candidate who could siphon votes from Salazar.
Salazars unique background as a journalist in a party dominated by President Donald Trump and her appeal with older, Spanish-speaking voters has enabled the GOP to remain competitive. Shalala, one of the most experienced first-time congressional candidates, won a competitive Democratic primary by less than 5 percentage points and has faced criticism from liberal Democrats and Republicans alike for her tenure leading the University of Miami, when campus janitors went on a hunger strike over low wages and the school acquired Cedars Medical Center.

It’s the ethnicity that counts in Miami.
Too close to Clinton!
I am willing to bet that this "non-party" candidate is actually a democrap operative falsely claiming to be a Trump supporter.
President Trump should contact this "non-party" candidate and tell him to drop out of the race.
Red wave! I’m sure NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, and MSNBC will be all over this ANY DAY NOW. </sarcasm>
Everyone is happy,
Everyone is kind,
