Chapter 1:  GOP Starts Hispanic Outreach Program

GOP leaders are going into the next phase of their outreach to Hispanic voters. This is in response to the fact more than 70 percent of Hispanic voters voted for President Obama over Republican nominee Mitt Romney in last November’s presidential election. As part of their effort, the GOP has selected a conference chair for Hispanic outreach, started appearing on Spanish language stations such as Univision and created a Spanish language YouTube channel and Twitter feed. Wet get the lowdown from Emma Dumain, Reporter for Roll Call where she covers House leadership and the oversight of the District of Columbia. We will also talk to Emma about Washington Mayor Vincent Gray and Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton and their call for Congress to pass the DC budget without interference.
