Endorsements

  • Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart endorsed Curbelo on May 13, 2014.[6]
    • Diaz-Balart stressed Curbelo’s “strong sense of integrity” and “commitment to government transparency,” a subtle contrast to Garcia and Rivera who have been scandal-plagued in recent years.[6]
    • "Carlos' dedication to public service is something I truly admire. 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,” Diaz-Balart said.[6]
