We received a phone call late yesterday afternoon that the candidate was scheduled to speak at a church in Little Haiti.

The Sun Sentinel reports...

"Manigat told her supporters, many of them well-educated members of South Florida's Haitian business community, that she needs their expertise as well as their money to win the March 20 runoff election against former singer Michel "Sweet Mickey" Martelly."

Michel Martelly said in his previous rally, "Haitians are saying 'ban-m manman-m' (give me my mother) and Mirlande Manigat seems to have answered that...

Manigat said:

"I am a woman, and a mother, and people see me with that perspective. There used to be a saying that our country needs a mother. I am not sure about that. But we are a very sentimental people."

Mirlande Manigat also campaigned in Montreal Canada and, while in South Florida, she spoke to a crowd of about 350 supporters in Plantation FL at a fundraiser, according to


Did you have a chance to attend any of these functions?

Do you think Mirlande Manigat will win the presidential election?

The reason other nations big or small do not respect Haitians is because we are poor and our fellow countrymen are sneaking illegally in their country to get a better life! No one has respect for you when you can't manage your own affair.
