One of the ugliest primary races in the state is going on here in South Florida.
Gus Barreiro and Alex De la Portilla, both former Republican state lawmakers, are battling it out for a Florida House seat in Miami.
Their race has become a messy fight with a series of slurs against each man’s moral character.
They also have quite a bit in common.
Both men come from political families, as well as a past as state lawmakers in the Florida Legislature.
