Sen. Rubio Challenges Farrar On His Record On Cuba

During today's Foreign Relations Western Hemisphere Subcommittee hearing, Senator Marco Rubio challenged Jonathan Farrar's record while serving as the Chief of Mission of the United States Interests Section in Havana, Cuba. Farrar has been selected by President Obama to serve as ambassador to Nicaragua, but his confirmation is in question, as many have questioned his record while serving in Cuba.

The AP (Spanish) has more details here on the questioning of Farrar by U.S. Senators Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Marco Rubio (R-FL).
