Letter to the Bradenton Herald from Walt Steiner

Dear Editor-in-Chief,

Senator Marco Rubio is a key and influential proponent for a strong and effective U.S. national security. His holistic view of American national security includes not only our military preparedness and international foreign policy leadership, but also our economic and energy security, public health security, immigration/border security and humanitarian rights policies. He is a recognized international advocate for our American national interest, a vital influencer in the global world of competing sovereign interests and the strongest proponent for the values of human rights so dear to our hearts. As a first-generation offspring of parents who fled a Communist regime in Cuba, he completely understands the suffering and inhumanity of Communism and authoritarianism.

While voters generally focus on “kitchen table” issues in election years, recent events, including the COVID pandemic, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, vital shortages and supply chain disruptions, rising food scarcity, skyrocketing inflation, and elevated energy costs, all inform us of the interrelationship between our daily lives and aspirations and the unforeseen dynamic shocks that impact America on the larger world scene. There is no better prepared nor more articulate political leader on international affairs in the United States Congress than Senator Rubio. For that reason alone, among many, he deserves your continuing support and your vote in November.

His Senate challenger, Val Demings, an avowed protégé of Nancy Pelosi, cannot hold a candle to him on keeping America safe and delivering on America’s promise! Florida needs our Senator to continue his hard work!
