TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – After narrowly losing a comeback bid in November, former Republican lawmaker David Rivera has opened a campaign account to run for a state House seat in 2018.

Rivera, a former state House member and congressman, filed the paperwork this week to run in House District 105, which House Appropriations Chairman Carlos Trujillo, R-Miami, will have to vacate next year because of term limits.

The district includes parts of Miami-Dade, Broward and Collier counties.

Rivera ran last year in Miami-Dade’s House District 118 but lost by 53 votes to Democrat Robert Asencio. Doral Republican Ana Maria Rodriguez also has opened a campaign account to run in 2018 in District 105.
