Alan Grayson urges Zika funding during South Florida town hall
MIAMI GARDENS -- During a South Florida town hall stop Saturday, U.S. Senate candidate Alan Grayson called for Republicans to pass President Barack Obama’s $1.1 billion Zika bill before the virus spreads further.
“This is not just a problem for today or a problem for tomorrow,” Grayson told the crowd of around 60, “it’s a problem for the next 80 years.”
The rest of the event was filled with questions from a friendly audience whose main quarrel with Grayson was that he didn’t fight back against attacks hard enough.
One audience member brought up the allegations of spousal abuse leveled against Grayson recently, which he called “nonsense dredged up from literally 20 years ago.”
