Latino GOP Candidates on the Rise in 2010
The mainstream media tends to ignore stories that do not fit their current narrative. The Press’ disdain for Arizona’s Immigration Law leads them to one conclusion; the GOP has a problem with Latinos. Any mention of Marco Rubio in Florida is quickly dismissed by the left press; the GOP’s tough stance against Castro has always drawn Cubans to the Republican Party.
In Nevada, former federal judge Brian Sandoval, a George W. Bush appointee, knocked off incumbent Governor Jim Gibbons to win the GOP gubernatorial nomination and has a 22 point lead in the polls, but somehow that story continues to evade the evening news.
And in New Mexico, the state with the largest percentage of Latinos (45%), Susana Martinez (endorsed by Sarah Palin) is the GOP’s nominee for Governor while John Sanchez is running for Lt. Governor, also under the Republican banner.
2010 is definitely the year of the Latino GOP candidate.
