Editor, Latino coverage and political reporter @BuzzFeedNews | Latino stories are American stories and they should be treated that way.

Meet The Univision Radio Host Attacking DREAMers And Republicans Alike — Last year, when the prominent leader of a Latino group called President Obama the "deporter-in-chief," he had a defender - the Spanish-language radio host Fernando Espuelas. He fired off a missive very similar to what Obama was then saying: Espuelas accused NCLR's Janet Murguia and other activists of "advocating that Obama break the law of the land."

This Is How The Republican Party Plans To Gain Ground With Latino Voters — Maria del Carmen Weese, a retired volunteer with the Colorado Republican Party, was skeptical. It was June 2014 and she was getting ready to hear the Republican National Committee (RNC) blueprint for reaching Latino voters in the state in the midterm elections.

Hillary Clinton Reaches Out To Meet With Hispanic Business Owners In Early States — Hillary Clinton has reached out to meet with Hispanic business owners in the early stages of her campaign. Clinton's political director, Amanda Renteria, played phone tag with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce president Javier Palomarez for a week before connecting with him Saturday to deliver the request: events with the candidate and Latino business owners and community leaders, according to a source familiar with the conversation.

Latino Leaders Frustrated At Liberal Donor Plan To Fund 35 Groups, Zero Latino Groups — It was billed as a big announcement, the Democracy Alliance, which advises wealthy liberal donors, unveiled a plan Monday to fund 35 organizations to help Democrats take power power in the states by 2020 and fight back on issues like economic inequality, voting rights and climate change.

Clinton Campaign Brings On Jose Villarreal As Campaign Treasurer — Eugene Hoshiko / ASSOCIATED PRESS A day after the long-expected announcement that Hillary Clinton is running for president in 2016, she has hired Jose Villarreal, a Latino with deep ties to the Clintons, as campaign treasurer, a Clinton campaign official told BuzzFeed News.

The DNC Still Hasn't Hired Someone To Run Hispanic Media Ahead Of 2016 — Ted Cruz is here, Marco Rubio is coming, and Jeb Bush looms, but the DNC still hasn't hired someone to run Hispanic media for them who can message to the Latino community about Republican candidates. The role has been vacant since Jan. 5, when former director of Hispanic media Pili Tobar left to become communications director for Rep.

Hillary Clinton Reunites Obama's Latino Team In Nevada With Second Hire — Jorge Neri, who served as the Nevada field director for Obama in 2012 is leaving the White House to join Hillary Clinton's coming presidential campaign as the organizing director in the state, sources told BuzzFeed News. A source with knowledge close to Clinton confirmed the hiring.

That Time Jeb Bush Spent 6 Months Running His Dad’s 1980 Campaign In Puerto Rico — Jeb Bush was nervous before one of his first campaign speeches ever. The speech wasn't in Iowa, or Texas where his family made their name, or even in Florida where he made his. It was at the El San Juan Hotel in Puerto Rico in 1979, before the birthday celebration for Gov.

Jeb Bush Camp Hires Former Romney Staffer To Run Hispanic Media Operation — Jeb Bush has hired Emily Benavides, an experienced Hispanic media operative, as he gears up for an expected presidential campaign. Benavides is joining Bush's Right to Rise PAC as a communications adviser and spokeswoman leading Hispanic media. She would be in line for a similar senior position if Bush moved forward with a potential campaign, a source told BuzzFeed News.

Will Puerto Rico Become The New Cuba In Florida In The 2016 Election — When President Obama became the first sitting president to visit Puerto Rico since John F. Kennedy in the midst of the 2012 cycle, it wasn't because the island is a pivotal swing state. Residents of Puerto Rico can't vote for president even though they're U.S. citizens.

@GOTV16 @clauvale77 @EspuelasVox actually you are proving my story right. A lot of fake noise and a handful of angry commenters.

@GOTV16 @clauvale77 @EspuelasVox but as story says, there are a handful of you and a lot of fake accounts. I also detailed what you do

@GOTV16 @clauvale77 give it a rest. @EspuelasVox knows there are things I left out of the article and called it fair.
