Martinez: Diaz-Balart wants to distract

Raul Martinez's campaign says Lincoln Diaz-Balart's new ad is proof that the Republican is feeling the heat of his challenger.

"Now that Lincoln is behind in the polls, he’s resorting to lies that are so outrageous, even he can’t make sense of them," said spokesman Aaron Blye. "On one hand he says the mayor was convicted and in the same ad he cites a Miami Herald news article that says the mayor wasn’t convicted. Twelve years ago, the Miami Herald reported that Raul was acquitted."

Martinez Monday will pick up the endorsement of the Service Employees International Union at his campaign headquarters in Hialeah.

We need to focus on the issues that we are dealing with today. I hope the these guys debate so we can hear what are their plans for the community. I heard Diaz-Balart has not accepted any debates, but Martinez has. What's up with that? If Diaz-Balart is so proud of his record he should debate.

Raul, you better mind your p's and q's. Next time they put you on trial, the jury may do the right thing.

Martinez is a crook and everyone knows it. No crooks in Congress!
