Things have grown uglier between Sen. Annette Taddeo and former Miami Commissioner Ken Russell as the Aug. 23 Primary for Congressional District 27 approaches.
Russell’s campaign accused Taddeo of selling Senate votes to the sugar industry, whose agriculture practices can hurt the environment.
The two Democrats, who spent a combined $529,000 last month, mostly on ads, are competing with “unapologetically progressive” candidate Angel Montalvo.
The winner faces incumbent Republican Congresswoman María Elvira Salazar or far-right candidate Frank Polo.
