Name: Juan "Jack" Diaz
Home State: Florida
Political Philosophy: Nationalist

Birth Year: 1979
Education Level: Associates Degree
Previous Occupation: Business
Wealth: Upper Class

Race: Hispanic or Latino
Gender: Male
Religion: Christian (Catholic)
Family Structure: Straight, married with > 3 children
Traits:


Juan "Jack" Diaz is, by a bare technicality, a third-generation American: His grandparents fled during the Cuban Civil War in the late 1950s, with his mother being born in the US a few months later.  He was, in turn, born when his parents still in college [notably, his mother was informed that she would be carrying Jack to term, on pain of disinheritance].

Upon coming to the US, the family made a small fortune operating a chain of car dealerships.

Jack's lack of a four-year college degree is a bit of an accident of his life: He was going to college when his father had a [non-fatal] heart attack, something which forced him to take an extended break from the family business.  His Associate's Degree was essentially a function of him needing "proper" training in managing the dealerships, such as accounting, but he took to it like water and never looked back.  He's hardly overly "bookish", either...he occasionally jokes with his Congressional staff that he can probably fix any problem that isn't down to a bad computer part on the side of the road.

Jack's election to Congress was another accident, this time of an electoral nature, as he got swept into office amid a raucous primary after the incumbent got tied up in a scandal [and Jack himself made a few colorful remarks about China as the pandemic was raging; most recently he gave a speech arguing that the latest variant should be called the skipped "Xi" variant as a much-deserved slap in China's face].

Key to Jack's prevailing political philosophy is a rather vigorous anti-communism, but this has melded with Catholic social teachings in a way that would not be historically out of place throughout much of the Latin world.  Unlike many Republicans, he's not opposed to government spending "in the national interest" and has proposed swooping in to countries facing debt-induced pressure from China and offering to pay off their loans in exchange for "switching sides" and giving not-as-sweetheart deals to the US...something that he freely admits is purely a matter of isolating China and has nothing to do with anything more idealistic.
