Crist Considering Cuban Visit: Report

AP

Former Florida Governor Charlie Crist has made no secret of his desire to end the U.S. embargo on Cuba, but he may go even further and take a visit to the communist nation over the summer, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

The Times reported that Crist is “eager to learn more about the country as he call for normalizing relations with Florida’s neighbor."

Crist’s calls to lift the embargo lines up with polling across the state and the nation that show majorities favor ending the U.S. policy.

While the Cuban community in Miami-Dade County has typically supported Republicans in the past, President Barack Obama made significant inroads to the Latino community. Whether or not Crist can keep those voters on the Democratic side could be the difference of his run for governor being successful or not.
