We have just received another official statement from a presidential candidate for our new forum, Candidates on Cuba. Governor Mitt Romney is the latest to do so. You can read Governor Romney’s statement on Cuba by clicking here.
It’s notable that to date we have statements from three Republican candidates and none from Democrats. We renew the call to the other candidates to have their campaigns submit statements.
The purpose of the forum is to serve as a clearing house for the official positions of the various presidential campaigns on the subject of Cuba. We are only going to post materials submitted by the campaigns specifically for this purpose.
We want to know where each candidate stands on things like the embargo, Helms-Burton, indictments for the castro brothers, travel restrictions, the political prisoners, human rights, the succession, etc. etc.
We have a space for each candidate:
Hillary Clinton on Cuba
John Edwards on Cuba
Rudy Giuliani on Cuba
Mike Huckabee on Cuba
Dennis Kucinich on Cuba
John McCain on Cuba
Barack Obama on Cuba
Ron Paul on Cuba
Mitt Romney on Cuba
Fred Thompson on Cuba
Campaigns with blank pages can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contact information for each candidate’s campaign is available at Candidates on Cuba (or click one of the links above). Democrat or Republican, you should encourage your candidate to submit a statement and/or a video. Babalu is one of the most widely read web sites on the topic of Cuba, so the candidates will have chance to speak on the subject to an engaged audience.
As the Florida primary approaches this is unique opportunity for the candidates to speak up on one of the issues that is on the minds of hundreds of thousands of Cuban-American voters in the state.
