Today, María Elvira Salazar released the below statement following her primary victory for Florida’s 27th Congressional District.
“In just one generation, my family went from fleeing communist Cuba to representing thousands of other exiles in Congress — something that’s only made possible here in the United States,” said Rep. Salazar. “The American Dream is achievable, but it must be protected. Our community is one of the most diverse in the country, most of us related to exiles from all over the world. Today’s families are struggling with many of the same issues we fled from: record-high inflation, increased crime in our communities, and jobs that don’t pay the bills. I’m ready to continue the fight against reckless policies that led us here and put American exceptionalism at risk.”
Salazar’s re-election has been endorsed by former United Nations Ambassador and Governor Nikki Haley, former Secretary of State and CIA director Mike Pompeo, current U.S. Senator Tim Scott, and the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO).
