  •  Lets see what happens in 2014. (0+ / 0-)

    Obviously he was going to underperform hispanics with Sharron Angle on the ticket. He carried a healthy 40% of hispanics in his 2002 statewide race.

    He also won his election by 12 points. Not insignificant.

    •  Yup. They don't have to win the Hispanic majority (0+ / 0-)

      They just have to chip away a little bit of that Hispanic majority that Democrats will get to push them over the edge.

      It's a good strategy for the Republicans.  However, I'm not sure they are ready to nominate a Hispanic.  I think that will be all up to the usual fatcat donors to decide, like Adelson and the Kochs, just like they ultimately settled for Romney and foisted him on a base that otherwise hated him.
