GOP's Problem with Hispanic Voters
GOP's Problem with Hispanic Voters

Listen
AIR DATE: October 5, 2010

LA Times writer Mark Barabak wrote in a recent article that the GOP's support for Arizona's controversial S.B. 1070 law has alienated Latinos who feel they are once again being scapegoated by a party with a history of harsh rhetoric and a penchant for backing anti-immigrant policies.

Barabak says that in Nevada gubernatorial candidate Brian Sandoval has come to symbolize the tension between Latinos and the GOP

Sandoval's support for Arizona's S.B. 1070 has even pushed some high profile Hispanic leaders in Nevada away from the Republican Party.

So are Nevada's Hispanic voters being repelled by the GOP and their support of laws like S.B. 1070? We talk with an LA Times reporter about Brian Sandoval and the tension between Hispanics and the GOP.

    Every one keeps referring to these events - boxing whatever as a sport. It's a business that happens to use a sport. Businesses should not be allowed to externalized their costs unto taxpayers.

    I had to look at my radio dial twice when I heard all these Latinos on KNPR's SON. I can't believe you are doing a piece on Latinos and it isn't about immigration, gang banging or drug dealers. Well, it's only the first 10 minutes, let's see how this pans out.
