Jared Moskowitz’s greater fundraising reach and appeal to high-profile endorsers towered over his opponents almost as soon as he announced his desire to succeed Rep. Ted Deutch representing South Florida in Congress.
And, on Primary night, the air of inevitability surrounding his congressional campaign, cemented into convincing vote totals.
Moskowitz won 61% of the vote and his closest competitor, Fort Lauderdale City Commissioner Ben Sorensen, drew 21%.
In November, Moskowitz will be up against Republican Joe Budd. It’s not expected to be a close contest, given the Democratic lean of the district that spans Broward and Palm Beach counties.
