McCain made a campaign stop in Little Havana. It seems fitting that McCain would talk about Latin America issues while in Miami. After all, it is the Banana Republic, right? In any case, he stated that if elected he would make his first Presidential trip to several Latin American nations in order to reinforce confidence in the United States’ stance regarding the region. He stated his concern about Venezuela’s rising socialism and the region’s growing discontent towards the United States. As expected, he also said that he would not endorse a Cuban embargo lift. The audience included aging Bay of Pig veterans and former Cuban political prisoners.
