Republican Carlos Curbelo and Democrat Joe Garcia showed on Thursday evening why the race to represent the southernmost congressional district is one of the most closely watched in the country.
“I have to give Mr. Garcia credit. His campaigns are getting better. In 2010 they had the straw candidate. In 2012 they had absentee ballot fraud. This year they’re just lying. Hopefully they will stop there,” Curbelo said
Garcia countered, invoking the top Republican on the ticket. “It’s this type of Trump-like behavior in a campaign that he’s doing. Time and again.”
