Hurriyet in Turkey reported on Ros-Lehtinen, who is a republican. "Ros-Lehtinen was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1952. Later her family fled Cuba and settled in the United States. Her maternal grandparents were Sephardic Jews, originally from Turkey. Her maternal grandfather, Jacobo Adato Levy, was active in Cuba’s Jewish community in the 1940s and helped establish several synagogues, the Jewish Daily Forward newspaper reported in 2005. But Ros-Lehtinen is an Episcopalian Christian. She has been serving as a congresswoman since 1989." The article cites her as a strong supporter of Israel, adversary of Iran, and question mark on Turkey??
