“He’s also focused on solving the crisis in Venezuela. The presence of Russia, China, Cuba, Iran, and Hezbollah poses a serious national security threat to the United States and our allies in the Hemisphere. We stand with the people of Venezuela fighting for freedom and we will continue to defend the security interests of our country.”Sen. Rick Scott
