Benna would challenge Republican Rep. Demi Busatta Cabrera, according to current draft redistricting maps.
South Miami lawyer Adam Benna is launching a campaign for the Democratic nomination in House District 114.
Over the past few months, Benna has been raising money through a political committee; he formally filed paperwork to run earlier this week. According to his campaign team, Benna has amassed nearly $50,000 as of Dec. 31. With the House redistricting plans seemingly setting up HD 114 to be a toss-up district, Benna says he’ll look to win the seat for Democrats in 2022.
“When I talk to residents and neighbors, they are concerned with very local issues,” Benna said in a statement announcing his run. “They are worried about property insurance rates, their rising FPL bills, affordable housing, and affordably converting from septic tanks to sewer lines. Our Representative and the Florida legislature are way off base … fighting ridiculous culture wars that won’t improve the lives of people who live here in Miami-Dade.”
