Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez is expected to announce his run for Congress.

Gimenez, who has been the mayor of Florida's most populous county since 2011, is planning to announce his bid for the state's 26th congressional district on Wednesday, sources told NBC 6.

The seat represents a portion of southwest Miami-Dade County and all of Monroe County. It's currently held by Debbie Mucarsel-Powell and one of the seats Democrats flipped in the 2018 election.

The details of his campaign announcement - which he is expected to make a day after his final state of the county address - were not immediately available.

Gimenez is term-limited after winning the mayor's seat in a special election in 2011.

NBC 6 anchor Jackie Nespral discusses numerous topics with Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez, including the relief effort for the Bahamas and the search for a new name for the arena.
