Next in my Challenger Series of videos made of up and coming GOP candidates for Congress is a Mr. E. J. Otero who is running for Florida’s 11th Congressional District.
Otero is a retired Colonel in the U.S. Air Force. Born in Puerto Rico, Otero’s father was a broadcaster and was a host of Voice of America-Radio Marti. E.J. has a Master’s Degree in International Relations from Troy and also attended the U.S. Air War College.
The Colonel was at U.S. Central Command working intelligence during Enduring Freedom in 2001 as well as Iraqi Freedom afterward. He also led negotiations with Special Operations partner countries such as Colombia, Poland, France, Jordan and the UK.
Otero’s already been likened to Allen West for his true-blue patriotism and outspoken nature.
