Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, Debbie Wasserman Schultz Stand With Venezuelan Leaders In Fight For Democracy

Miami, FL – Yesterday, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, candidate for U.S. Senate, and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz met with leaders in the Venezuelan-American community to discuss protecting democracy, fighting for lower costs, and expanding opportunities for Floridians. Recently, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell also met with Venezuelan opposition leader María Corina Machado to hear more about Machado’s fight for free and fair elections.

“I am proud to stand with Venezuelans in Florida and all over the world to deliver a clear message to Maduro and his dictatorship: No más,” said Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. “Together, we are calling on Maduro to abide by the Barbados agreement to respect the results of the primary election. The issue of protecting democracy should be a bipartisan issue. Floridians deserve a leader who will seriously fight for our Venezuelan-American community and for democracy – not self-serving politicians who treat this as an opportunity to score political points. As someone with family in South America, I’ll fight harder than anyone to defend democracy and human rights in the region.”

“I’ve fought for our Venezuelan-American community alongside Debbie Mucarsel-Powell in Congress, so I know firsthand that she is the champion Floridians deserve in the U.S. Senate,” said Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. “Floridians deserve better than Rick Scott, who would rather play political games than deliver for our communities. We must stand together to hold Maduro accountable and support María Corina Machado and Venezuelans in their fight for democracy.”
