There is soooo much to unpack here. Thoughts?
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus on Thursday denied Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo his membership bid, the latest volley in a nasty dispute between the Florida lawmaker and some members of the all-Democratic caucus.
The CHC voted to oppose Curbelo’s bid to join after weeks of back-and-forth between him and some members of the group who have questioned whether his intentions were politically motivated. Curbelo represents a Latino-heavy district in Miami that is a top target for Democrats in 2018.
“I think it was pre-cooked,” Curbelo said in an interview Thursday afternoon. “I will stand up to bigotry and discrimination no matter whether it comes from the right, the left, the middle.”
