This election isn't merely about the political clout of Latinos. As the largest and fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population, Hispanics represent this nation's very future. And right now, we're simply not doing enough to secure that future.
Latinos are growing in power and influence. Census numbers show Latinos are the nation's largest minority population, moving front and center in U.S. political discourse, innovation, and pop culture.
President Obama retains a wide lead among Latino voters over Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, but lingering questions remain about how many will show up to vote on Election Day.
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Mayor Julian Castro of San Antonio, stand as opposites in a cultural and political split that has divided millions of U.S. Latinos for decades.

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro will deliver the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte in September, it was announced Tuesday, making him the first Latino to receive the honor.
The mayor of recession-proof San Antonio is a bright hope for Democrats.
