RELEASE: The Growth of the Latino Electorate in Key States
Contact: Crystal Patterson
Washington, D.C. — Today the Progress 2050 project at the Center for American Progress released a new infographic detailing the increased influence that Latino voters will have in future presidential elections.
As the immigration and sequester debates move forward in Congress, Americans of all backgrounds are watching. Latinos, African Americans, and other voters of color have much at stake in both of these debates. As we have seen in the 2012 election, these voters can have a significant impact on election results, and as both parties look ahead to the 2014 and 2016 elections, they should take note of changes in the electorate that are happening at the local level.
“Latino voters are poised to be even more influential for years to come—not just in national elections but also in key state races. Leaders from both parties should take note that the electorates waiting for them in 2014 and 2016 will be remarkably different than in years past,” said Vanessa Cardenas, Director of Progress 2050.
