Florida's Charlie Crist: End Cuba embargo

E-mail Print PDF

Charlie ChristFormer Florida Gov. Charlie Crist called this week for the United States to abandon its decades-old trade embargo with Cuba.

"The embargo has done nothing in more than 50 years to change the regime in Cuba," Crist said in a statement to CNN. "If we want to bring democracy to Cuba, we need to encourage American values and investment there."

Crist, a former Republican, is now running as a Democrat to retake his seat from GOP Gov. Rick Scott. Eliminating the 52-year-old embargo, he said, would be a great economic stimulus for Florida, which sits roughly 100 miles from the communist island nation.

"As a Floridian, I'd like to see that happen because a lot of construction would be required on the island, and South Florida could be the launching pad for all of that and really create a lot of jobs," Crist said Friday on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" program, where he initially called to break the embargo.

"It is obvious we need to move forward and get the embargo taken away," he added.
