Marco Rubio Wants to Save the American Dream

In 1956, amidst the fitful days leading up to the revolution, Sen. Marco Rubio’s parents left Cuba for the United States. Arriving here, they joined the wave of immigrants who would eventually populate Miami. Both took up jobs in the service industry: Mario Rubio as a bartender in hotels, and his wife Oriales variously as a maid, cashier, and stock clerk.

Big Labor Drops Big Dollars on Dems

Big Labor is dropping big money on the 2018 elections despite their own rhetoric about outside spending.

Unions represent 12 of the top 25 largest outside spending organizations in the 2018 midterm elections. Two of the three highest institutional outside spenders are labor groups, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. The Carpenters and Joiners Union tops the list having spent $23.8 million on the midterm elections. Nearly all of that money has gone to aid Democratic congressional and Senate candidates, as conservatives benefited from only $612,500. Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) is the third largest with $11.1 million spent—$10.3 million has gone to aid Democratic candidates.
