MIAMI - Carlos Gimenez will remain Mayor of Miami-Dade County.
Miami-Dade and Broward County voters hit the polls to make their mark in the Florida Primary on Tuesday. The biggest race of the day -- the Miami-Dade County mayoral race.
Gimenez was elected last year after voters recalled Carlos Alvarez.
Martinez had the backing of the Miami-Dade County police union, whose political action committee was running an ad attacking Gimenez.
