ALBUQUERQUE, NM (AP) New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and Florida Sen. Marc Rubio are popular, relative political newcomers in presidential battleground states.
The rising GOP stars are also Hispanics, something the Republican Party makes no secret of hoping to capitalize on in the upcoming national elections.

These Hispanic politicians give lie to the liberal idea that the GOP is racist and bigoted.
Governors Jindal of Louisiana, and Haley of South Carolina, both of whom are descended from Indians(from India)also give lie to the liberal idea that the GOP is the party of whites, but that any racial/ethnic minority should find their political home in the Democrat party.
Herman Cain is a powerful example of the liberal lie that any member of a minority group should be Democrat, due to Republican bigotry.
The article is based on the premise that the GOP actually has a plan and can ‘lure’ voters against their will (brainwashing anyone?).
The old adage applies: “I don’t belong to an organized political party - I am a Republican”.
Some in the GOP do have a plan;
I despise a system where its not always based on the best candidate but who that candidate can attract. We’re culled out and separated by race,religion and wealth. Maybe i’m an idiot for wanting better but i do know this method has only served to drive us further apart.
So it’s being Latino that is important.
So it’s being Latino that is important.
These young, vivacious leaders have substance, intelligence and demonstrable ability. I haven’t heard any of them say that the best course for America’s future is hope and change. They are rising on their own.
Free tuition Amnesty
And who would that be? I know you're not referring to Perry because in Texas they have to PAY their tuition and Perry fights amnesty. Are you referring to Mitt?
In what way? Everybody wants to feel welcome in their political party, and the GOP unfortunately gives the impression of not being very welcoming and in fact possibly even anti-Hispanic. This is usually referred to as “anti-illegal immigration,” although the only “illegals” they ever mention are Hispanics, and to them any Hispanic is by definition “illegal” until it can be proved otherwise. I wouldn’t feel very welcome in that party either, if I were Hispanic.
So these Latino success stories make it clear that being Hispanic is no barrier to being part of the party of conservative principles.
Ths thread article is leftist spin...spin...spin...hardly a factually based treatment of the headline subject, and what the article means is that the GOP is indeed making inroads into the Hispanic electorate:
Get these little gems quoted from the article:
“And while Martinez is the nation’s first Latina governor, Hispanic politicians are far from a novelty here.”( She is just another pig in a poke?)
“Sandoval, a former state attorney general and federal judge who took office the same time as Martinez, has focused less on his heritage and has largely avoided hot-button issues like immigration.”
( he is an Uncle Tom Hispanic?)
“...Sandoval. He hasn’t appointed Hispanics to his administration in notable numbers and his interactions with the community have largely been limited to formal galas and luncheons with Hispanic businessmen.” ( BUSINESS MEN DONATE MONEY FOR CAMPAIGNS,but the dems think it wrong to fundraise from an ethnic base? Its only OK when dems do it?)
On Rubio: “Despite his roots, he has largely dodged taking a public stand on tough immigration issues, refusing recently to be interviewed about immigration by the nation’s largest Spanish-language network, Univision, whose audience tends to strongly support immigration reform,
( Rubio is an Uncle Tom Hispanic.. a sell out?)
5) The leftist punch line unsupported by anything written factually in the article:
“They vote according to policies and they know very well that Sandoval, Martinez and Rubio do not represent the best interests of the overall Latino population in terms of giving them the tools to prosper in this tough economy.”
YOU BET THE DEMS ARE WORRIED. The GOP is indeed gaining support in the Latino Community.This is a liberal fascist article which plays on negative emotional stereotypes designed to dehumanize GOP Latino politicians...typical Alinsky tactics:
Yeah but Cain just said he wants an electric fence on the border with a sign saying “it will kill you”. Does that help?
Many of these politicians are for ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ which is the code phrase for amnesty, Romney being one of them.
Neither obama or Rubio are Natural Born Citizens
It’s interesting to note that neither the Indian nor Hispanic populations at large lash out at conservatives from their communities the way blacks do to people like Cain, Rice, Thomas, Janice Rogers Brown, et al.
It strongly suggests that the prevailing sentiment among those other minority populations is not to be threatened by conservatives in their communities. The black community, however, led by the nose by the likes of Jackson, Sharpton, and lied to by plantation writers like Leonard Pitts, Clarence Page, Charles Blow, Bob Herbert, believes it has something to lose with the rise of black conservatives.
Martinez would be a GREAT VEEP candidate if a conservative wins the nod. If Romney wins the nod, he could resurrect Reagan and I still would not vote for him.
