Elected in 2020, Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar proudly represents Florida’s 27th Congressional District, passionately serving the people of South Florida. She currently serves on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs as well as the House Committee on Small Business. She is well-known for her advocacy for human rights and democracy around the world, especially for the people of Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, and Nicaragua, as well as for her unabashed support of our global & regional partners such as Israel, Colombia, and Taiwan.
Maria Elvira Salazar’s victory in defeating Rep. Donna Shalala in 2020 was the biggest upset of the election cycle. RJC is proud to have supported Salazar, a daughter of Cuban immigrants who distinguished herself as a television journalist before entering politics.
