Today, former Democratic Congressman Joe Garcia gave opening remarks during a Clinton-Kaine campaign rally in CD26 at Florida International University. In the remarks, Garcia emphasized his support for Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine's vision for America and said he would work in Congress to turn that vision into a reality.

"I'm proud to be a Democrat and I'm proud to support Tim Kaine and Hillary Clinton," said Joe Garcia, candidate for Florida's 26th congressional district. "Today, I received the endorsement of our leader Barack Obama, and in Washington, I will stand beside our next President and Vice-President, Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine to help build on the progress we've made."

The Garcia campaign has been working hand-in-hand with the Clinton campaign in South Florida to stand firm against divisiveness and extremism, and to send Joe Garcia and Hillary Clinton to Washington.

In his remarks, Garcia said "we need an administration that respects women, that invests in its young, and that looks forward because we are the greatest country in the history of the world and we'll continue to be."

Prior to making his opening remarks today, Garcia received the endorsement of Barack Obama for his work supporting the his agenda over the last 8 years. Garcia hopes to continue his work in Congress with the next administration as well, and has stated he will fight for major reform that grows the economy without leaving the working and middle class behind.

Carlos Curbelo still refuses to back Hillary Clinton or to disclose who he is voting for. Curbelo, like Trump has called Social Security a Ponzi Scheme, refuses to release his secret lobbying client list, voted to shut down the government to defund Planned Parenthood and has environmental views that are out of touch with South Florida voters, including offshore oil drilling and relinquishing National Park Service protections for Biscayne National Park and handing control of a national marine reserve to Governor Scott.
