Statement on the Cancellation of the Debate in Miami
Statement from Executive Director Christopher Richmond:
"Joe Biden came to Miami on Monday and met with community leaders and elected officials in Little Haiti and Little Havana before answering voters' questions for 60 minutes during a televised town hall because he respects Miami voters and has concrete plans to improve all of our lives. We are not surprised that Donald Trump is too scared to answer questions from Miami voters, because we know how disastrous his record has been for our health, our jobs, our economy and our standing as a beacon of democracy."
