The local media has picked up on the story of the South Florida House Republicans falling over themselves to avoid debating their surging challengers.
We've now accepted 10 debates and still have not had our opponent, Mario Diaz-Balart show up to face the voters of FL's 25th. He has recently agreed to two debates scheduled in October but it remains to be seen if he'll show. He has repeatedly accepted debates in the past but then blown them off for "scheduling conflicts" and other ridiculous excuses. Please contact him and tell him the voters of South Florida deserve to hear a discussion about the issues facing our region.
As you may have seen, my opponent Mario-Diaz Balart is scared and resorted to spreading lies.
Diaz-Balart is scared of my record of fighting for consumers so he is trying to lie his way to re-election. You and I know better though; and so does Local 10 News, who ran a truth test on Mario's latest ad and found that it was filled with false accusations and misinformation.
One can see why Mario is running away from his record. If I had been in Congress for six years and only passed one bill, while giving myself five pay raises, and voting against healthcare for children, services for our returning veterans and giving oil companies billions in tax breaks, I would be doing the same.
