Appointed to U.N. post, Trujillo won't resign from Florida Legislature
Miami Rep. Carlos Trujillo said Sunday he won't resign his seat in the Florida Legislature if the U.S. Senate confirms him to a post in the Trump administration.
On Friday, the White House nominated Trujillo, a Republican, to be a United Nations representative under Ambassador Nikki Haley.
Trujillo said he confirmed over the weekend that the position would not require him to abandon his elected office. He is term-limited from the state House next year. That would avoid a special election to replace him in House District 105, a Republican-leaning seat.
