Miami Hot, Even in Pouring Rain



The emotions that have been building for months over the re-election of state Sen. Alex Villalobos, R-Miami, spilled into the streets Tuesday when both Villalobos and challenger Frank Bolanos showed up to wave signs near a precinct at 47th Street and 157th Avenue.

Buzz has few details at this time, but apparently supporters on both sides began hurling insults at one another, adding yet another ugly chapter to the state's nastiest legislative race. No word yet if the guy in the chicken suit was involved.
