The four top candidates in the race to become Florida's next U.S. senator have met to discuss the issue of U.S.-Cuba relations.

Gov. Charlie Crist, GOP challenger Marco Rubio, Democratic candidates U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek and former Miami Mayor Maurice Ferre addressed the nation's most powerful Cuba lobby, the US-Cuba Democracy PAC, on Monday in Coral Gables.

The event was the first since the Senate campaign began that all attended simultaneously.

And no wonder. Not only does Florida have a large and politically active Cuban-American community, but a recent report by a non-profit that tracks political donations showed the PAC and its supporters have given more than $10 million to congressional campaigns over the last seven years.
