Obama and McCain Court Latino Voters

La Opinin, Posted: Jun 25, 2008

WASHINGTONThe presidential campaigns of Barack Obama and John McCain have intensified their efforts to reach out to religious leaders, politicians and others in the Hispanic community, reports La Opinin. On June 25, Obama and McCains campaign directors participated in forums with religious and community leaders at a conference with Esperanza USA, the largest Hispanic evangelical network in the United States. Esperanza President Rev. Luis Corts, Jr., who met with Obama in Chicago several days ago, told La Opinin that Obama needs to do more to reach out to the Latino community. McCain and Obama will speak at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) conference in Washington, D.C., and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) conference in San Diego. McCain will also attend the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) meeting in Washington, D.C. Spokespeople for the candidates told La Opinin that their participation in these events reflects the candidates commitment to the Latino community.
