Less than a week into his final re-election bid, Homestead Mayor Steve Losner is amassing support from both sides of the political aisle.
On Monday, six days after he filed to run, Losner’s campaign announced 13 endorsements.
Twelve came from Republicans, including Sens. Ana Maria Rodriguez of Doral, Alexis Calatayud of Miami, Ileana Garcia of Miami and Bryan Ávila of Miami Springs; Reps. Tom Fabricio of Miami Lakes, Juan Fernandez-Barquin of Miami-Dade County, Alina Garcia of Miami, Vicki Lopez of Coral Gables, Jim Mooney of Islamorada, Juan Carlos Porras of Miami and Alex Rizo of Hialeah; and Miami-Dade Commissioner René García.
Miami Democratic Rep. Kevin Chambliss also gave Losner a nod.
Rodriguez, Chair of the Miami-Dade legislative delegation whose district, along with Calatayud’s, covers all of Homestead, noted the incumbent Mayor’s deep roots in the city as a major asset.
