Miami Beach Mayoral Race
It’s not something you usually see less than a week before an election. Two candidates for Mayor banding together, standing side by side, agreeing on the same thing. And that thing is their disdain for opposing candidate Phillip Levine.
There’s now one less name in the running for Miami Beach mayor. Wednesday evening Miami Beach Commissioner Jerry Libbin announced that he was pulling out of the race.
Despite a series of controversies which had threatened the re-election bid of Mayor Matti Herrera Bower, voters on the beach returned her comfortably to office Tuesday, as she beat three challengers while holding almost 60% of the vote.
