Statement By RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman On Cuban Independence Day

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman, Ken Mehlman issued the following statement today, in celebration of Cuban Independence Day:

“On May 20, 1902, the Cuban people victoriously concluded a long and arduous struggle against oppression and political persecution to establish a freely elected Cuban government. This passion for a free Cuba still lives in the hearts of many Cubans – many of whom have escaped to the United States to pursue freedom. The Republican Party recognizes the accomplishments and contributions Cuban Americans have made to this country, and joins them in their desire to witness once again the end of a dictatorship and the beginning of a Cuban democracy.”
Its a nice gesture.
