A little conventional wisdom

The conventional wisdom is that the Republicans ignore Hispanic voters.
Republican speakers, at a conference on how to effectively reach Hispanics, urged the party to tone down its rhetoric on immigration and to take up comprehensive reform in Congress, warning that the party could lose ground with the country’s increasingly diverse citizenry if it doesn’t.

The reality is that the newly elected Hispanic senator from Florida, the newly elected Hispanic governor of New Mexico and the newly elected Hispanic governor of Nevada are all Republicans.

At some point, the Hispanic community is going to start asking why Democrats fail to nominate Hispanic candidates.
