U.S. Congress District 25

There are four U.S. congressional seats on the Miami-Dade County ballots and we’ve chosen to focus on three of those races. In this race the Republican incumbent, Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, faces a strong challenge from Democratic candidate Mary Barzee Flores.

Based on the questions you had for the candidates, and factoring in some relevant topics, we sent questionnaires to the candidates and asked them questions about the following issues: the environment, criminal justice reform, gun control, the economy, healthcare, Puerto Rico, and immigration.

Thanks to readers Vanessa Haim and Marianna Yerak, and others who submitted questions anonymously.

Rep. Diaz-Balart did not respond in time for publication so we’ve linked to information on him and to his campaign website. We will update his profile if the candidate responds before election day.

Mary Barzee Flores is the Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress District 25.

Mario Diaz-Balart is the incumbent Republican candidate for U.S. Congress District 25.
