Scott reaffirms his support for Venezuela (Pics)


After the Maduro regime in Venezuela arrested Roberto Marrero, the Chief of Staff of President Juan Iguaido and destroyed his family’s home three weeks ago, Romy Moreno, his wife, was forced to flee that country.

Mrs. Moreno, who is in Florida, attended a roundtable meeting with Senator Rick Scott (R) in Doral, where the freshman senator continued his open opposition to “Maduro’s ruthless dictatorship” and the “thugs” that have carried out his human rights atrocities.

Scott’s colleague, Senator Marco Rubio (R) has been for years, the ‘big voice’ when it comes to shouting and dressing down Nicolas Maduro and his government.
