Recent public polling shows that Giménez has a small lead in Florida’s 26th Congressional District. Giménez is the Mayor of Miami-Dade County, is a former firefighter and he is well-liked by his constituents. Though this district has a voter registration advantage for Democrats, Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo won this seat twice (2014 and 2016) and Senator Marco Rubio won this district by nearly a point and a half in 2016. In 2018, FL-26 was decided by fewer than two points. This seat is primed for a Republican win.
