Does the GOP have a Latino problem
Does the GOP have a Latino problem

AIR DATE: October 27, 2011

At the Western States Republican Presidential debate in Las Vegas, GOP candidates hammered each other over their records on immigration after a Nevada Latino in the crowd asked "what is your message to the Latino community?" Hispanic Republicans have chided their own party leadership saying they aren't doing enough to appeal to Latino voters and are driving some voters away with harsh anti-immigrant rhetoric. In 2010 Latinos were credited with being a big part of Sen. Harry Reid's reelection and in 2008 President Obama won 67 percent of the Latino vote.
So with 2012 fast approaching will the GOP be able to win over Latino voters? We discuss what the GOP has to offer to Hispanics.
