Joe Saunders challenges Fabián Basabe in HD 106

by The 100 Companies

Former Democratic Rep. Joe Saunders is running to unseat Republican Rep. Fabián Basabe, a first-term lawmaker who drew rebukes in recent weeks from constituents outraged by his voting record and alleged misconduct.

Saunders, a political director for Equality Florida, bashed Basabe for voting in support of restrictions on LGBTQ-inclusive education, crackdowns on drag shows and repealing a post-Parkland ban on under-21 long rifle sales.

House District 106, which covers Miami-Dade County’s coast between Miami Beach and Aventura, “deserves a lawmaker who doesn’t vote against his constituents in the Capitol and then panders to us at Pride,” Saunders told Florida Politics.
