Politics are tuff that way….
Check it out:
Marco Rubio was raised in West Miami and still lives just a few blocks south of “Calle Ocho,” the famed boulevard where Cuban Americans often gather to protest the Castro brothers. The Florida senator’s parents immigrated here from Cuba in the 1950s — a familiar history for many locals. His presidential bid will be announced Monday at the iconic Freedom Tower, which long served as an immigrant reception center.
About 12 minutes east is Coral Gables, where Jeb Bush lives. He came to South Florida in the 1980s to launch a real estate business and move his Mexican-born wife closer to her mother and sister. The couple raised three children, and Bush used his leadership of the local Republican Party to launch a political career that resulted in two terms as governor.
