MIAMI -- Days away from the run-off election for the District 2 seat in the city of Miami commission, District 3 commissioner Frank Carollo is pleased to announce his endorsement of candidate Ken Russell.

"I endorse Ken Russell for City of Miami Commissioner in District 2," Commissioner Frank Carollo said. "Ken has harnessed the energy of fresh political insight for Miami and its residents."

"I am excited about the opportunity to work with Ken in the City Commission for the betterment of the community and the City of Miami as a whole," Carollo added.

The endorsement from Commissioner Carollo is the latest from a sitting elected official in Miami-Dade. 

While Russell's opponent in the upcoming contest has withdrawn, the election is still legally on. The campaign is asking voters who have requested absentee ballots to check their mailboxes for a fresh form, fill it out, and mail it in.

The election will be held November 17.
