Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Democrat Annette Taddeo in an effort to give a late boost to the Democrat’s candidacy against Republican state Rep. Jose Felix Diaz in the competitive race for Senate District 40 in Miami-Dade County. Victory for Taddeo on Tuesday would bring Democrats one step closer to their long-term goal of taking back control of the Florida Senate, where Republicans hold a 24-15 advantage. The seat became open last spring after then-Sen. Frank Artiles, R-Miami, was forced to resign in April over racist and insulting remarks he made to a pair of colleagues, and over revelations that he’d hired apparently unqualified young women — including a former Hooters “calendar girl” — as campaign consultants.
