The special general election will take place on December 5th, 2023.
MIAMI, Aug. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — DISTRICT 118 — We are excited to announce that former Councilman Johnny G. Farias is the Democratic nominee for State Representative of District 118, a competitive swing district in Miami-Dade County. As a longtime resident and advocate for the people of District 118 and a well-known local business owner, Councilman Farias is determined to bring about meaningful change to the district and to all Floridians.
Due to a DeSantis appointment earlier this summer, Florida’s 118th House District will hold a key special election this fall. The district, predominantly Hispanic and previously held by Democrat Robert Asencio, encompasses a narrow area of Miami-Dade County west of the Florida Turnpike, including neighborhoods such as Goulds, Kendall, Sunset, and South Miami Heights.
While the much-anticipated general election is scheduled for Tuesday, December 5th, the campaign has burst out of the gate with remarkable momentum. In a mere six days, from August 3rd to August 9th, it achieved an impressive feat, amassing a staggering $36,000 in donations. The impressive support is born out of the acknowledgment that our affordability and insurance crisis cannot continue.
