Jean-Guy's bad day

In spite of an underfinanced campaign, former U.S. Interests Section chief Jim Cason was elected mayor of Coral Gables yesterday with 3,056 votes. He credited Granma with driving extra Cuban-American votes in his direction with articles like this one from writer Jean-Guy Allard. Miami New Times, which also profiled Cason, tried to claim credit for the victory in an article sub-headlined, “Banana Republican.” Don’t yet know how the city’s foreign policy will change.
