Latinos demand more say at DNC

July 29, 2004 at 3:02 PM   |   Comments

BOSTON, July 29 (UPI) -- Latino delegates are asking why they only have two prime time speakers at the Democratic convention, the Boston Globe said Thursday.

"Some Latino delegates want to know why the party selected only two members of the fast growing ethnic group to speak at the convention during prime time this week," the paper said.

"The party has been wooing Latino voters whom Democratic officials and pollsters say could make critical differences in such battleground states as Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada and Florida. But only two prominent Latinos -- Representative Bob Menendez of New Jersey, a Cuban-American, and New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, a Mexican-American -- received speaking slots in prime time this week," the Globe said.
