Fmr. Congressman: Bernie Sanders is the Reason South Florida Hispanics are Flocking to Trump

Headlines Politics U.S.

Former Florida Republican Congressman Chris Curbello is offering stark advice to the Joe Biden campaign: do not listen to Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“Bernie Sanders is the reason why the socialist label has stuck for some voters on Joe Biden,” Curbello said. “Bernie Sanders is the reason a lot south Florida Hispanics, in particular, are afraid the Democratic Party has moved to far to the left.”

“Latino voters…understandably are concerned with all this talk of socialism because they left their countries, fleeing those ideas and fleeing those kinds of revolutions,” he added.

We reported last week on how President Trump has opened up a surprising lead among Latino voters in Florida on former VP Joe Biden. The poll showed Trump leading Biden among Latino voters in Florida by a margin of 50%-46%.
