VALUE VOTING:

Hispanic Democratic group in Fla. rejects Kerry endorsement, citing moral issues (Erin Curry, Oct 29, 2004, BP)

The Democratic League of Miami-Dade County has announced it does not endorse John Kerry for president, mainly because he is part of the current party leadership that has rejected the moral values and ethical principles of the vast majority of Democrats across the country, according to league chairman Eladio Jose Armesto.

With more than 1,000 members and a reach that expands to 100,000 pro-life, pro-family Democrats in Miami, the Democratic League was chartered by the Miami-Dade Democratic Party in 1989 and is primarily led by Hispanic-American Democrats.

The league released a statement Oct. 27, saying the Democratic presidential candidate stands "at a polar extreme of American public opinion" on certain issues, including same-sex "marriage," partial-birth abortion and human cloning.


The way in which gay marriage informs this election is going to lead to some surprising numbers on Tuesday.

Are these non-Cuban Hispanics? If so, they are new voters for Bush. If not, they would be voting for Bush against Castro's pal Kerry anyway.

They're Americans, Bart.
