EMILY’s List backed former Circuit Court Judge Mary Barzee Flores (D) in the crowded Democratic primary for retiring Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen’s (R) seat. In a statement, the group’s president, Stephanie Schriock, touted her “as a dogged public defender and empathetic judge in the same community she was born and where she and her husband are ​raising their family.” (release)

Ros-Lehtinen is retiring in 2018 leaving open a seat that backed Hillary Clinton by 20 points. Other candidates in the race: state Sen. Jose Javier Rodriguez (D), Miami-Dade Com­mis­sion­er Bruno Bar­reiro (R) and Knight Foundation Program Director Matt Haggman (D).
