MiamiHerald / In fighting his way into a Nov. 21 runoff election for Miami City Commission, Alfonso “Alfie” Leon emerged as a dark horse candidate and knocked off two heirs of the city’s political dynasties .
But if he hopes to pull off a repeat upset against former Mayor Joe Carollo, he’ll have to do it without the help of his former opponents.
Trailing Carollo by 600 votes after the general election , Leon’s campaign had hoped to get a boost from the five other candidates in the race who combined pulled nearly half the 6,000 ballots cast. But so far, no one has rushed to Leon’s aid.
If anything, they’re doing the opposite.
