But it's also election season. And with it comes the temptation to mix blood and politics.
That can be toxic, or at least counterproductive.
And so we come to the Miami-Dade Republican Party's email that says "Our Venezuelan brothers and sisters want and deserve a free and democratic country and the Republican Party stands with them. Unfortunately, Joe Garcia and the Democrats continue a policy of cozying up to America's enemies like Nicolas Maduro and abandoning our freedom-loving allies."
The first sentence is true. Gov. Scott, Sen. Marco Rubio and Lieutenant Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera held a Friday event in Doral that clearly showed the state's GOP leadership supports the cause of Venezuelan liberty and an end to Maduro's reign.
