Lincoln Diaz-Balart infomercial: Let's prove the so-called experts wrong

Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart takes on what he calls the "so-called experts" who suggest a shift to the Democrats among younger Cuban American voters.

Appearing late Thursday on a paid political ad on Spanish-language WAQI 710 AM Radio Mambi, Diaz-Balart didn't mention his Democratic challenger, Raul Martinez, but asked for support "so I can continue fighting for the cause of liberty."

He added that some analysts suggest the Cuban exile community wants a change in U.S.-Cuba policy, but that he's confident his reelection will prove otherwise.

"There are so many analyses from so-called experts almost daily saying our community has changed and that we do not have the support of the community," Diaz-Balart said. "We know this is not true. But we need the mandate, the public support, the support of the community in the election, and humbly ask for that support."
