PHOENIX - Arizona Spanish-language television networks, radio stations, and newspapers in the state are banding together to register Latino voters over the next 10 weeks - a potential boon for Hillary Clinton's campaign in the somewhat longshot state of Arizona.
In 2012, the Obama campaign's deputy Latino vote director Alida Garcia was frustrated that, while the campaign had Hispanic surrogates training staff, it would not commit to the hiring of a full-time Latino vote director and a more robust program in Ohio. The same can't be said four years later.
Donald Trump's immigration pivot is here. In a meeting with his newly announced Hispanic advisory council, Donald Trump suggested he is interested in figuring out a "humane and efficient" manner to deal with immigrants in the country illegally, while stressing that it will still be in line with the border security-focused approach that has invited intense opposition from Latinos and immigrants since he launched his campaign.
A top former Bush administration official has endorsed Hillary Clinton, warning that Donald Trump is a "perilous" threat to the country. Rosario Marin, appointed as the first Mexican-born person to serve as United States Treasurer by George W. Bush and a fixture of five Republican presidential campaigns, endorsed Clinton in a Univision op-ed Wednesday morning.
Bernie Sanders highest-ranking Latino operative Arturo Carmona is joining mitú, a digital media company aimed at young Hispanics, BuzzFeed News has learned. Carmona, who crisscrossed the country for Sanders as deputy political director with a focus on garnering the support of young Hispanics who responded to his candidacy much more than older Latinos did, will lead community engagement and public affairs.
They came in buses, from Utah and elsewhere, excited to help elect Mitt Romney in 2012. Spanish-speaking Mormon volunteers - former missionaries at ease making phone calls, knocking doors, and pitching strangers on the street - were a unique resource for the Republican nominee in the key southwest swing states.
Two operatives have joined the Clinton campaign's Florida Latino efforts with deep experience in organizing people and in Hispanic media - in fact, one is coming directly from Univision. Francisco Pelayo has left Univision to become the campaign's Florida Hispanic press director - a decision he partly attributed to the candidacy of Donald Trump, who blacklisted his former employer and kicked out its popular anchor Jorge Ramos from a press conference.
Wadi Gaitan took the helm of the communications department for the Florida Republican Party in May 2015, fresh off making House Republicans more well-known on Spanish-language media. His plan was to work toward flooding Florida with the message, tone, and care that would aid Republican efforts to wrest back control of the presidency.
PHILADELPHIA - Rep. Joaquin Castro has been making the usual rounds - Texas delegation breakfasts and Latino unity events - at this year's Democratic National Convention. But instead of being asked about his brother's chance of becoming Hillary Clinton's vice presidential nominee, the focus has shifted to his own political future.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. David Pogue)
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama +Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
