Henry Gomez at Babalu wrote in with this on Raul Martinez:
A little background… Raul Martinez was the wildly popular mayor of Hialeah, the most Cuban city in America. He was popular because he lived by the old Tip O’Neil axiom that all politics is local.
…He’s running for Congress against Lincoln Diaz-Balart a popular Republican. The district contains almost the entire city of Hialeah as well as other parts of south Florida where Martinez doesn’t have any juice. It’s going to be an ugly campaign and we are of course supporting Diaz Balart. This incident with the protester is well known but people need to be reminded of how much of a hothead this guy is. One thing is to be a mayor another is to be a legislator where you have to build coalitions and consensus.
Democrat Raul Martinez is expected to mount a significant challenge to Republican Diaz Balart this year at the ballot box.
