    they would be holding voter registration drives for Hispanics in front of the GOP reps offices.  Starting with the GOP reps in CA Denham, Valadao, Nunes, Issa, McCarthy, Royce, Hunter, Cook and Calvert for example.  Then going to Texas in Farenthold, Culbertson, Poe, Smith, Thornberry, Olsen, Marchant, Hensarling, McCaul, Neugeberger and Sessions to name a few.  Coffman and Tipton in CO, Pearce in NM, Ros-Lehtinen and Diaz-Balart in FL.  

    All those GOP reps have districts where Hispanics represent 25% or more of the population.  That's 24 districts right there where a heavy Hispanic GOTV effort could elect more Democrats.  That's more than enough to flip the House.
