Carlos Lopez-Cantera on Foreign Policy

 

 


Defend democracy in Cuba, Venezuela, & Israel

Lopez-Cantera touched on foreign-policy issues crucial to South Florida voters: defending democracy in Cuba and Venezuela and improving relations with Israel. "CLC!" chanted the largely Cuban-American crowd, using Lopez-Cantera's initials and legislative nickname.

Lopez-Cantera, 41, is running as an heir to Rubio--he sat on stage with the incumbent senator when Rubio launched his presidential bid--and cuts a similar campaign figure for a GOP hungry for diversity: a fresh-faced Cuban American with a young family. His wife, Renee, works in the Miami Herald's circulation department, where she does not come into contact with newsroom reporters or editors.

After Cuban "normalization," more beatings & more oppression

Because Ląpez-Cantera is of Cuban descent, it is fair to assume that he opposes President Obama's new U.S. policy with communist Cuba. "CLC," as he is known around the state of Florida, pointed out that since Obama announced the "normalization" of relations between Cuba and the U.S., "more beatings and more oppression" have occurred in Cuba, adding that if he were in the Senate, he would vote against any ambassador to Cuba the President selected.
