(2/2)They’re looking for a leader who will work for results and provide commonsense leadership for our community. That’s what I’ve done for the last nine years as Mayor, and that’s what I’ll do in Congress. I’ll bring us together instead of being a partisan mouthpiece. #FL26— Carlos Gimenez for Congress (@CarlosGimenezFL) August 4, 2020
(1/2)ICYMI: Cook Political Report moved #FL26 from lean democrat to a TOSS-UP. It’s evident #SouthFlorida voters are not impressed with the incumbent Member of Congress’ lack of leadership, partisan politics and catering to the squad. pic.twitter.com/tNntOzIitC— Carlos Gimenez for Congress (@CarlosGimenezFL) August 4, 2020
