David Rivera responds to swipes from Democratic challenger Gloria Roses

in Uncategorized by

The campaign of incumbent Republican Congressman David Rivera shrugged off a rival’s comments slamming Rivera for state and federal investigations into his finances, reports the News Service of Florida. In a conference call Tuesday afternoon, Democratic challenger Gloria Romero Roses said Rivera was distracted by the probes; Florida investigators confirmed last week that he would not face state charges. “Congressman Rivera is completely focused on doing the job the voters elected him to do,” Rivera’s campaign said in a written statement Wednesday. ” … Once the redistricting process is over, and Democrats have finally settled on choosing a candidate, there will be more than enough time this Fall to deal with their false and negative campaign tactics.”
