The renowned actor and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda asked Hispanics to vote in the midterm elections on November 8 in order to recover “snatched rights,” as he said at a rally held in Coral Gables, in the south of the state.
The also playwright was part of a campaign event for Democratic candidates for Congress in Washington and for the state legislature, during which he alluded to the decision of the Supreme Court, with a conservative majority, that eliminated abortion protection at the federal level, as well as to recent restrictions on the LGBT community and immigrants.
“I know they’re upset, their rights are being taken away,” said the author of the hit musical “Hamilton.”
Miranda stressed that “there are no small electoral races” and that the “more local” the position to elect in the voting card, the more it will impact the vote in daily life, in addition to enhancing that in electoral matters.
Previously, the Democratic candidate for the federal Congress Annette Taddeo, who seeks to snatch the seat for the 27th electoral district in Florida from its current occupant and candidate for re-election, the Republican María Elvira Salazar, pointed out that the Democrats are the party of “freedom ”.
“We cannot be for freedom in Cuba or Venezuela if you are not first in favor of freedom in our country,” said Taddeo, alluding to the conservative positions of the Republican Party to which Salazar has aligned, which he describes as “liar”.
