A Likely 5th Cuban-American House Member

Wednesday, May 14, 2014
Last night, Alex Mooney won the Republican nomination for the 2nd Congressional District (CD) of West Virginia.

Mooney is Cuban-American and a strong supporter of sanctions against the Castro regime.

The 2nd CD of West Virginia is a Republican-leaning district.  It is currently held by U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), who is heavily favored to win the open U.S. Senate seat.

Thus, Mooney is likely to win in November.

As such, it will make him the fifth Cuban-American Member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The current four Cuban-American Members of the House are U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL), U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (FL), U.S. Rep. Albio Sires (NJ) and U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia (FL).

Also, there are three Cuban-American Senators -- U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (NJ), U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (FL) and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (TX).

All of whom support sanctions towards the Castro regime.

Almost forgot, Mooney is 42-years old. So we're still awaiting some fact-based evidence on the "generational change" theory.

Congratulations, Alex!
