Donna Shalala filed campaign paperwork on Monday, formally shaking up the Democratic primary to replace retiring Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
A former Clinton administration official and University of Miami president, Shlala is a well-known name in Miami and has influential friends well beyond. Her candidacy has been expected.
She’ll face off in a crowded primary for a district that Republican Ros-Lehtinen held but was won handily by Hillary Clinton.
