Biden is tougher than Bernie on Maduro. This could help Biden in Florida

Bernie Sanders will have to explain to Florida Venezuelans and Cubans why he has decried US intervention against Maduro.

Biden is more pro-Guaido.

Joe Biden (if he runs) would in my opinion outperform Sanders in Florida against Trump.
