Mariela Castro, the daughter of Raul Castro, endorsed President Obama on CNN: 

"I believe that Obama is a fair man," Castro says. "And Obama needs greater support to be able to take this decision. If Obama counted on the full support of the American people, then we could normalize relationships--we could have better relations than what we had under President Carter."

"Do you want Obama to win the next election?" she is asked. 

"As a citizen of the world, I would like him to win," Castro says. "Seeing the candidates, I prefer Obama."
