(Coral Gables, Florida) Dr. Andy Gomez, Senior Advisor with Poblete Tamargo, was interviewed this week by National Public Radio (NPR) as part of a story that discusses how U.S.-Cuba policy makes its way into South Florida political campaigns.

"It reflects, he says, “taking a step back in terms of the maturity that the Cuban-American community has shown in terms of politics. Every once in a while we fall back into the politics of passion, and this is what we were seeing between Curbelo and Garcia” Congressional campaign.
