Mayor Francis Suarez touts ‘Miami miracle’ versus the ‘Washington nightmare’
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez explains the city’s ‘recipe for success’ that sets it apart from blue states and cities.
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez joined "Mornings with Maria" Tuesday to expand on the city's recipe for economic success and growth, while also teasing his exploration of a potential 2024 run for U.S. president.
"Look, it's a long way aways," Suarez admitted to FOX Business' Maria Bartiromo. "Right now, I'm excited to preside over the presidency of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, and try to convince other mayors across America that the Miami model works, that they need to adopt it so that they can create prosperity in their cities."
"If that continues to work, and if Miami continues to be successful," the mayor added, "then I think there's going to be tremendous amount of options available for me politically if I decide that I want to continue to serve."
Responding to whether or not the Republican mayor has started planning for a presidential campaign, Suarez explained he's currently focused on delivering "due diligence" as Miami's mayor.

"We're doing our due diligence and, of course, doing what I have to do as mayor to try to continue to highlight the things that are happening in Miami," Suarez noted, "which we think, again, should be a model for the rest of the country."
