  • Delete. Does not meet WP:POLITICIAN or the General notability guideline. Google news shows only three hits in any way related to the subject of the article: one is the site recording his registration for the election, one is about him as an intern for another politician 4 years ago, and the last has a quote from him in an article about Hispanics registering as Democrats in Florida. -- Donald Albury 15:33, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Merge & Redirect- To United States House of Representatives elections in Florida, 2012#District 21 (currently empty); likely search term. Merge basic candidacy and redirect. Dru of Id (talk) 16:38, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Merge first two sentences to United States House of Representatives elections in Florida, 2012#District 21. Like Druid says, this is a likely search term (don't know how many of those are Wikipedians looking at the AfD, but still) and the elections page is a natural spot for the content to be at. Appears to be weak when compared to relevant notability guidelines. No prejudice against recreating should he do something surprising ("notable") later on, of course.

  • DO NOT DELETE :: I am also a candidate in the same race, same district as Cesar. We are, in fact, opponents. In these times of societal turmoil, when democracy has been sold to the highest bidder, it is important for societal institutions to support the democratic process. In the context of the November general election, Cesar IS NOTABLE as one of only three candidates (including an incumbent) who has qualified for the ballot to represent 696,000 citizens in the United States House of Representatives, as I have. We both face an uphill battle against an entrenched, moneyed, career politician. Any community forum, including Wikipedia, may serve as a potential resource for the people who are looking for information about those who are vying for their votes, hoping to serve. For that reason, I suggest that you not delete this page, at least until after the general election date of Tuesday, November 6, 2012. My name is W. Michael (Mike) Trout; I am a candidate for Congress in Florida's New 21st Congressional District, and I approve this message. <span style="font-size: smaller;" class="autosigned"/>— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:08, 22 June 2012 (UTC) (talkcontribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.

  • DO NOT DELETE AND CHANGE POLICY I do not believe this article should be deleted either. I may be biased because I am the Campaign Manager, but I believe in the principles of opensource information sharing, and I don't believe deleting this page is justified simply because Wikipedia thinks that Cesar Henao isn't "famous" or a "celebrity". I think Wikipedia needs to change their standards, and recognize the kind of exposure a private citizen chooses to undergo by qualifying as a candidate for public office. We have filed documents with the Internal Revenue Service, Federal Election Commission, and the State Department of Florida - all of which are public record. Deciding to run for public office is something that sets people apart, because most people don't do it. I disapprove of Wikipedia's attempts to be a gatekeeper of information on such an important subject as voter education. I think Wikipedia's standards are based upon the wrong measurements, and is based upon a "celebrity" mentality when it comes to approving pages. This policy is not helping anyone in the 21st century who wants to be better informed about their government, and the people hoping to represent the people in elected office.— Preceding unsigned comment added by JasonWeakley (talkcontribs)
