Clinton seeking to organize Latino voters

Published 10:29 am Thursday, October 1, 2015

NEW YORK — Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign is planning a major push to organize Latino voters ahead of the Nevada caucuses and early primary contests in Texas, Florida and Colorado, all with an eye toward connecting with Hispanics in the 2016 election.

The Democratic presidential candidate will be in South Florida on Friday and will hold campaign events this month focused on Hispanic voters in San Antonio and Las Vegas. Her campaign will use the first Democratic presidential debate, Oct. 13 in Las Vegas, and a GOP debate Oct. 28 in Boulder, Colorado, to organize house parties geared at garnering support among Hispanics.

Clinton’s pitch, called Latinos for Hillary, will also extend to Hispanic lawmakers and elected officials, and will include an address next week to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s annual meeting in Washington.
