This week, Miami, Florida will be the home to the first series of debates for Democrats in the presidential campaign.

Originally, Miami had hoped to be the location of the Democratic National Convention, but these debates are bringing plenty of attention to Miami.

Candidates have already arrived and made some appearances.

The Miami Herald reports that Jay Inslee, the Governor from Washington has ridden an airboat and visited Little Haiti to highlight the environment.

Julian Castro, a former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development has said, "I'm looking forward to Wednesday night. For me, it's an opportunity to introduce myself to a lot of American voters who may not know who I am and what I'd like to do if I'm elected president". Castro has been in Miami since Sunday.

Republicans have also taken the opportunity of this media attention to make some appearances.

Vice President Mike Pence spoke to a crowd in front of a Double Tree saying, "I'm here for one reason and one reason only. That is because Florida and America need four more years of President Donald Trump".

So far, however, some of the top Democratic candidates such as former Vice President Joe Biden, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, and California Senator Kamala Harris have not made or announced any appearances yet.
