A group of Texas leaders on Thursday joined a nationwide coalition to fully lift the United States' trade embargo with Cuba, aiming to stimulate trade between the pro-business state and the island nation.

The politicians, business leaders and advocates joined the new Texas State Council for Engage Cuba, a national organization that lobbies from Washington, D.C. to end the U.S. travel ban and trade embargo with Cuba. Texas will be the group's eighth statewide effort.
