From Stephan Wall’s article in The Sun:
“A lot of Latinos regard Republicans as hostile to Latinos and immigrants,” said Claremont McKenna College political scientist Jack Pitney. “They don’t have that perception of McCain.”
In a close election, the Latino vote could be “decisive” in key states such as New Mexico and Colorado, Pitney said.
“If McCain does well among Latinos,” Pitney said, “he could hold New Mexico and Colorado in the Republican column.”
