The 11-candidate field for Miami-Dade County mayor has been whittled down to two.
Election results Tuesday night confirmed what poll numbers and political experts had predicted would occur: former Hialeah Mayor Julio Robaina and former Miami-Dade County Commissioner Carlos Gimenez will battle in a June 28 runoff election for the mayorâ€™s post.
With all precincts reporting, Robaina placed first in Tuesdayâ€™s voting, receiving more than 33 percent of votes cast. Gimenez was less than five points behind with nearly 29 percent of votes cast.
Former state Rep. Marcelo Llorente placed a distant third at nearly 15 percent, followed by rapper-turned-politician Luther â€œLukeâ€ Campbell at 11 percent.
