Hispanic Group Endorses Newt

Mitt Romney may have made a push for the Latino vote with his "Nosotros" ad, but it was Newt Gingrich who was endorsed Monday by the country's largest Hispanic Republican group. Somos Republicans announced its support for the former speaker of the House today in a statement praising Gingrich for "working hard for many years to include American Hispanics in the overall conversation for a better America." Gingrich's stances on immigration have attracted Hispanic voters from the Republican and Democratic parties alike, which could help in the South Carolina primary because, though only a small percentage of the state's registered voters are Hispanic, the GOP election allows members of all parties to participate.
