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.
For the first time, latino politicians were keynote speakers at both national conventions, illustrating the growing power wielded by those politicians and latino voters.
After having many prominent Latinos take to the stage at the RNC Convention, the impreMedia/Latino Decisions tracking poll finds a noticeable bump in support for Romney and Republicans among Latinos.
Cuban Senator Marco Rubio and presidential nominee Mitt Romney make the two final speeches outlining the vision of the party, a couple of months away from November’s election.
Republican leaders, including a number of Latinos, used their national platform to make their case for a Romney presidency while at the same time reassuring Hispanics they are indeed welcome in the party.
