Congressional debate and futbol!

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.


  1. I will be voting for Joe Garcia who voted against SB6, a bill that would have destroyd public education in Florida.

  2. Ok, my bad. Sorry for the mistake on the Putney lineup: The two Dem candidates were not on the show, leaving more time for the three Rep candidates to show just how alike they are. (I'm sure Joe Garcia and Luis Meurice will be invited at another time) More later. There is some kind of game coming on TV now. ;P

  3. Joe Garcia had a rousing good time at the Cup Final and happy friends showered him with donations.


I have decided to moderate comments for a while as there are some that are simply off-subject and have become personal and offensive in nature, attacking not just me but others through this venue.

Comments that add substance and context to the news and issues in the blog will be posted. Comments that use profanity and abuse this open space to attack others will be saved and, when called for, sent to the appropriate authorities.
