Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, met with leaders in the Puerto Rican community at a cafecito in Orlando to discuss protecting democracy, fighting for lower costs, and expanding opportunities for Floridians.
The Florida Democrat is challenging Republican Senator Rick Scott.
“I am proud to spend time with members of the Puerto Rican community here in Orlando and discuss the issues most important to them,” said Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. “Puerto Ricans in Florida deserve lower costs, economic opportunities, and the chance to make ends meet with one job. That starts by electing a new leader who represents our story and our values. Rick Scott has turned his back on our community, and he’s done nothing to deliver results. We won’t let him continue to take away our opportunities. Ya no más.”
The Democratic U.S. Senate candidate kept busy while in Orlando. Over the weekend, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell helped get out the vote with Democrat Tom Keen to support his special election in Florida House District 35. But the Central Florida campaign swing didn’t end there.
She also attended two Martin Luther King Jr. Day parades and honor the life of Dr. King. along with Congressman Maxwell Frost. Former Congresswoman Val Demings also joined the Senate candidate at the Eatonville parade.
