Gonzalez Running Again

In 2004, Republican Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart defeated Libertarian challenger Frank Gonzalez by a margin of 73-27%. This was a surprisingly strong showing for a Libertarian in a Congressional race. In fact, it’s a better performance than Democrat Patrick Cusack’s 24% in 1998… the last time Diaz-Balart had been challenged.

Next year, Gonzalez is trying again… this time running as an anti-war Democrat.

    I wish Frank well. He really had a amazing ride, and I hope we can turn the LP into enough iof a political machine to get him into office as a LP candidate if he doesnt make it this time - but I bet he will make it this time.

    If he does make it, there’s always the chance he could switch while in office. :)

    Biggest problem might be the huge Cuban population of the district, and the current Congressman is also Cuban.

    I think Gonzalez actually did REALLY well in Broward County, like just a little under 40% there. But Miami-Dade killed him.

  3. Austin Cassidy Says:

    Here is it… about 37% in Broward, but only 25% in Miami-Dade.
