Miami-Dade, FL – October 16, 2018 – The Maria Elvira Salazar for Congress campaign released a new ad addressing recent attacks from democrat opponent Donna Shalala.
In a video, Shalala criticized Maria Elvira for saying “Bravo Trump” in a tweet. What Shalala left out of her negative ad was the fact that Maria Elvira’s comment was in reference to President Trump’s meeting with Lilian Tintori, the wife of the most important Venezuelan political prisoner Leopoldo Lopez.
“Shalala has proved once again that she does not understand the concerns of this community. I know how my Venezuelan brothers and sisters feel. I sympathize with their pain and suffering. That is why I have been and will continue to be a firm supporter of the Venezuelan opposition, and I will applaud any act of solidarity and support toward them,” Maria Elvira Salazar declared.
This is why we are all tired of Washington politicians.
My opponent attacks me because I thank President Trump for meeting in the White House with the wife of Leopoldo Lopez, the most important political prisoner that Venezuela has today.
It is precisely because of this lack of sensitivity and solidarity that those who are oppressed are so alone.
I am Maria Elvira Salazar and I approve this message, because the Washington elites will never understand who we are or what worries us.
