Romney Courts Hispanic Voters

There is double-digit unemployment among Hispanics in this country and Mitt Romney is going to use that miserable statistic for all it’s worth. The Republican presidential candidate hopes to lure Latino voters in such states as Florida, Nevada, and Colorado by arguing that he is better suited to solving their economic woes than the president. “The Obama economy has been hard particularly on Hispanic businesses and Hispanic businessmen,” Romney said at a Mexican-American-owned office-supply company in Fort Worth, Texas, on Tuesday. “I can tell you if I’m the next president of the United States, I’ll be president for all Americans and make sure this economy is good for all Americans, Hispanic and otherwise.”
