HAVANA TIMES – The Democratic candidate for governor of Florida, Charlie Crist, said in public during his recent visit to the neighborhood of Little Havana in Miami, that “we must end the US trade embargo on Cuba,” AP reported.
Crist said that “if you really care about the people on the island, we have to settle the embargo and let freedom reign”, he said as a group of hecklers cried “shame.”
According to the news item, Democrats sense that there is a new attitude of the Cuban newcomers and second generation Cuban-Americans who favor renewed diplomatic relations with the island.
Crist is a former Republican governor who once said that he would only go to Cuba “when it is free”. Now is accused of betraying the Cuban community in Florida.
