Salazar and Shalala
The Republican Maria Elvira Salazar and the Democrat Donna Shalala were nominated for the Congress by the district 27.
Salazar and Shalala face off in the 27th district for the seat in the federal Chamber. The Republican primary in the 27th district gave a lesson: the media figure of Maria Elvira Salazar (40.95%) weighed more than the political career of Bruno Barreiro (25.6%), the former state congressman and former Miami-Dade commissioner for 20 years.

In the Democratic field, the former Secretary of Health and former president of the University of Miami, Donna Shalala, won a tight victory over her immediate contender, state representative David Richardson (31.9% -27.5%, respectively).

District 27 was redesigned in 2015 and was left with an independent and democratic trend.
