Mario Diaz-Balart Backs Carlos Curbelo to Challenge Joe Garcia

On Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart announced he was backing Miami Dade School Board member Carlos Curbelo over former U.S. Rep. David Rivera, R-Fla., in the Republican primary to take on U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia. Diaz-Balart stressed Curbelos strong sense of integrity and commitment to government transparency, a subtle contrast to Garcia and Rivera who have been scandal-plagued in recent years.

"Carlos' dedication to public service is something I truly admire, Diaz-Balart said on Tuesday. I have always known him to be respectful and have a strong sense of integrity. His time serving on the Miami Dade County School Board has proven his effective leadership and commitment to government transparency and fiscal responsibility, both of which Florida's residents deserve. I proudly stand with Carlos in his candidacy for the 26th Congressional District."

Mario Diaz-Balart is a courageous and dedicated public servant who has always put the interests of our community first, Curbelo said. I am honored to have his support, and I look forward to working with him to make our economy more competitive, protect our seniors, and secure a prosperous future for younger generations of Americans.
