FACTS: Joe Garcia, Democrat Candidate for Florida’s 26th Congressional District (FL-26)

Posted by FactReal on October 31, 2012

In 2010, we did an extensive reporting on Democrat (leftist) Joe Garcia, who is currently running against Republican David Rivera for Florida’s newly redrawn 26th Congressional District (FL-26).

Below is a reprint of a 2010 post which summarized in one page many of our reports. Each link will take you to more facts and/or primary sources about Joe Garcia. Note: In 2010, Garcia and Rivera were fighting for the 25th congressional district (FL-25).

THE REAL JOE GARCIA – Videos, Public Records, Donors…

Posted by FactReal on October 25, 2010

PUBLIC RECORDS AND HIS FRIENDS SPEAK FOR JOE GARCIA

Who is Joe Garcia?

ON THE ISSUES
Joe Garcia will be a rubber stamp for Pelosi and Obama:
Joe Garcia would have voted for the bailouts (Video)
Joe Garcia would have voted for ObamaCare but could not say how to pay for it.
Joe Garcia and his leftists views: He favors bailouts, ObamaCare, high taxes, abortion, illegal immigration, gun control.
Joe Garcia and Obama love high energy prices (Video)

LOBBYISTS:
Lobbyists are major donors to Joe Garcia’s campaign, but leftists like Joe Garcia love to publicly demonize the lobbyists and accuse their opponents of being bought by ‘special interests.’

ALLIANCES AND DONORS
Cuba is on the list of States Sponsors of Terror, but many Joe Garcia’s donors are from travel agencies or charter companies that want to be in business with Fidel Castro. Remember, these companies have to be in good standing with Castro to be allowed to land and do business in Cuba. Castro will not let anyone land on Cuban soil without his permission and without benefiting himself.
Joe Garcia donors linked to Fidel Castro:
John H. Cabanas, more here
Richard Reposa, more here.
Alfredo Duran, more here
Ramon Cernuda
Augusto Maxwell
Magda Montiel Davis
Congressman Charlie Rangel (D-NY) (more here)
His friend famous for his scandals, violence, corruption: Raul Martinez
Joe Garcia’s donor is the same rich investor behind Amendment #4: Chris Findlater
Joe Garcia’s leftist donors hide behind a committee to attack David Rivera with ads:
Jorge Mas Santos (from the Cuban American National Foundation),
Carlos Saladrigas (from the Cuba Study Group), and Chris Findlater.
Nancy Pelosi came to Miami to raise funds for Joe Garcia (Photos)

DISCONNECTED FROM CONSTITUENCY?
Joe Garcia doesn’t live in Florida’s 25th congressional district and spent most of the past year out of state. Garcia lives in Miami Beach, the opposite side of the district he wants to represent. How can Garcia know or understand the people in the FL-25 district?
