Univision Is Going To Hold A Republican Presidential Candidates' Forum After All — Univision News is poised to announce a Republican presidential candidates' forum ahead of "crucial" March 2016 primaries in partnership with The Washington Post, after missing out on the initial batch of debates sanctioned by the Republican National Committee.

Alcantara, 31, served as a senior advisor to Julian Castro at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) where she headed the communications team.

Bernie Sanders: I Support Further Executive Action On Immigration, Too — In a forceful speech at the NALEO conference of Latino elected officials in Las Vegas, Nevada, Friday, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said he supports a path to citizenship and further executive action on immigration that would protect the parents of citizens, legal permanent residents, and the DREAMers.

Hillary Clinton On Charleston Church Shooting: We Have To Face Hard Truths About Race, Violence, And Guns — LAS VEGAS - Calling it a "massacre" that broke her heart, Hillary Clinton said the country must be honest with itself and face hard truths about race, violence, and guns during her remarks at the NALEO conference of Latino elected officials on Thursday.

George P. Bush: Good Times Are Here Again - If You Elect My Dad — LAS VEGAS - George P. Bush, son of Jeb Bush took his first campaign trip for his father on Wednesday - to Nevada, underscoring the importance of the caucus state and planting a flag where his cowboy boots and belt play well.

This Group Helped Get Dozens Of Diverse Republican Candidates Elected And They're Back For 2016 — A Republican group whose honorary co-chairs are Govs. Brian Sandoval and Susana Martinez will spend big in 2016 with a singular goal: putting more diverse Republicans in office. The Republican State Leadership Committee's Future Majority Project is aiming to recruit 250 new candidates to run for state-level office, get 50 of them elected or appointed, see 10 minority elected officials enter leadership in states around the country.

This Is How Jeb Bush Plans To Reach Out To Latino Voters — Jeb Bush was loose before his campaign kickoff event Monday in Miami, joking around backstage and letting loose a dirty word in Spanish, a "colloquial street Miami thing," said Jose Mallea, Bush's hire for connecting with Hispanic voters. "I don't want to repeat it, it was a curse word," he said in a phone interview.
