Florida Lt. Governor Carlos López-Cantera has formally announced that he will run for the 2016 U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Marco Rubio.

Because López-Cantera is of Cuban descent, it is fair to assume that he opposes President Obama’s new U.S. policy with communist Cuba.

“CLC,” as he is known around the state of Florida, pointed out that since Obama announced the “normalization” of relations between Cuba and the U.S., “more beatings and more oppression” have occurred in Cuba, adding that if he were in the Senate, he would vote against any ambassador to Cuba the President selected.

López-Cantera also railed against the new Iran nuclear deal, saying he would also vote against the deal if he were in the Senate. When asked if he supported a possible Israeli preemptive strike against Iranian nuclear facilities, López-Cantera said he would support any move Israel made.

We asked him to talk about Donald Trump’s recent remarks about illegal immigration, but CLC did not want talk about the matter.
