  •  Plus Rubio is CUBAN (12+ / 0-)

    How does that help him in "Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, and even now, or soon, Arizona." It doesn't. Mexican-Americans understand the fine points. The Republican Party's ONLY elected Hispanics in Congress at Cuban-American, with one of Portuguese descend, hardly representation of American Latinos.

    As for my home state of Ohio, Rubio would be a complete non-issue. Virtually ALL of Ohio's Latinos are Puerto Rican (in the Cleveland are most of them) or Mexican — and they are not very numerous. Ohio is NOT "leaning red." Governor Kasich and his attempts to destroy unions and bloat the state budget at the expense of local communities and public schools will be the issues, and they don't fall on the side of the GOP.

    Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.
