Winner: Kevin Marino Cabrera. Cabrera had a monster week in his bid for the Miami-Dade County Commission District 6 seat. The governmental relations specialist raised more than $100,000 in a week, and secured endorsements from former President Donald Trump and Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis. In 2020, Cabrera was Florida State Director for Trump and the Republican National Committee.
Loser: Gianfranco Puppio-Pérez. Puppio-Pérez is facing removal from his post as Miami-Dade County Republican Party Vice Chair after failing to attend three straight Miami-Dade GOP Executive Committee meetings. The party’s constitution provides for automatic expulsion if members miss three consecutive meetings.
