Miami, FL – Community Newspapers, a regional chain of newspapers that includes the Kendall Gazette and the Cutler Bay News, has endorsed Debbie Mucarsel-Powell in her race to unseat Republican Congressman Carlos Curbelo.
“The Community Newspapers gives its endorsement to Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, the congressional candidate whose life and career has been all about giving back,” the endorsement reads. “Born in Ecuador, Debbie immigrated to the U.S. as a teenager with her mother and sisters seeking the American Dream. Now, she’s running as the Democratic candidate seeking election to the U.S. House to represent the 26th Congressional District of Florida – to better the lives of those in her community – and to continue to give back.”
The newspaper lists Debbie’s positions on enacting common-sense gun reform, creating an economy that helps all workers, and expanding access to healthcare as some of the reasons to support her in this election.
“Debbie lost her father at the age of 24 to gun violence so she understands firsthand the devastating impact gun violence has on our families and communities,” the editorial reads. “She will fight for common-sense gun safety legislation; work to close the gun show loopholes; and prevent those with a history of domestic violence, terrorism, and mental illness from purchasing guns.”
This month, Mucarsel-Powell was also endorsed by The Miami Herald.
“Debbie Mucarsel-Powell is the realer deal for District 26 and will advocate for its residents’ everyday interests,” the Herald’s editorial board wrote.
