Arizona Sen. John McCain picked up support from three South Florida Cuban-American members of congress - Mario and Lincoln Diaz Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
“Senator McCain is a strong supporter of the U.S. embargo on Cuba and understands that the Cuban people have been living under tyranny for far too long,” said Rep. Ros-Lehtinen. “John has been working with us to help bring freedom and democracy to the enslaved island.”
“Ileana, Lincoln, and Mario appreciate the value of freedom and exemplify the honest, hardworking tradition of the Cuban-American people,” said McCain. “I am proud to stand with these representatives and friends as we continue to work toward a free and democratic Cuba. It is a critical time for the Cuban people and we must remain steadfast in our commitment to support the current U.S. policies toward Cuba.”
