Congressional candidate Joe Garcia (D) is hoping to score a few goals with supporters Sunday at a World Cup party at the Sports Bar and Grill, 11995 SW 26 St., beginning at 1:30 p.m.
We'll know by then if he scored any at the District 25 congressional debate on the Michael Putney show at 11:30 a.m. Expect it to be lively after the fracas at the local REC meeting Thursday night, where Paul Crespo (R) was asked to leave by West Miami Police in what he says was an abuse of power by David Rivera (R), the chairman who is getting a lot of heat for an FIU-wide email sent by two profs drumming up donations.
Marili Cancio (R) is also expected to be at the televised debate. We also expect to see District 25 candidate Luis Meurice (D), who scored the AFL-CIO endorsement (which Garcia had in 2008 when he ran against Mario Diaz-Balart in an unsuccessful campaign for the U.S. House).
I can't wait to tune in.
