From today's Denver Post:
Mauricio Claver-Carone of the U.S.-Cuba Democracy PAC, an anti-Castro group, says Cuba is using the agriculture sales in an effort to influence U.S. policy toward the nation by buying from states and seeking their help lobbying Congress.
Claver-Carone said U.S. companies can do business only with a quasi-governmental import agency run by the Castro family.
"We will be for (opening trade with Cuba) the day when U.S. farmers and the people in Colorado can do business with the Cuban people — when Cubans can open up a business or a fruit stand," Claver-Carone said. "This doesn't help the Cuban people."
