Florida Sen. Rene Garcia, chairman of the Florida Hispanic Legislative Caucus,
sent a blistering letter Wednesday to Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross
demanding an apology for his political action against Hispanic lawmakers who
opposed a stadium deal earlier this year.
Ross recently set up the "Florida Jobs First" political action committee to raise money for Gov. Rick Scott's reelection bid and attack legislators who weren't sold on the proposal to let Miami-Dade County voters decide whether to increase the county's hotel bed tax to help underwrite a $350 million Sun Life Stadium renovation.
