Haitian-American Woman Looks to Unseat Hastings in Florida Primary

Sheila Cherfilus- McCormick

By Lisa Dumas

Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick is not your average Democrat. 

Cherfilus-McCormick is a first-generation Haitian American, and, although she’ll be running against incumbent heavyweight Alcee Hastings in Florida’s District 20 congressional primary next month, she  may also become a legend in her own right.

If she wins, the 39-year-old attorney, CEO, and healthcare-reform lobbyist will become the second Haitian American  to be elected to Congress.
