The Democratic National Debate in Miami is around the corner.  For two nights, 20 candidates will take the stage at the Adrienne Arsht center to discuss a series of topics. The actual list has not been announced yet but it is likely gun violence, climate change and immigration will come up. Former Republican Representative from Florida’s 26th District Carlos Curbelo lost his seat to Debbie Murcasel Powell in the 2018 elections. He joined Sundial to talk about the upcoming debates and election.
