On Friday, volunteers and staff from the AARP Florida office went to Miami’s historic Versailles restaurant in the heart of Little Havana to remind former Governor Mike Huckabee of the importance of health and financial security issues. While waiting for the Governor to show up for lunch, we spoke to the people milling around about the importance of ending the partisan bickering in DC and finding solutions to the issues that affect us everyday. Also in the crowd were the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives Marco Rubio and Florida State Senator Alex Diaz de la Portilla. Pics below.
Also, the staff volunteers and members in Florida are gearing up for a big rally on Monday, the eve before the big day of voting. Check out what the blogs have to say about it.
