Editor, Latino coverage and political reporter @BuzzFeedNews | Covering the 2016 election through a Latino lens. @DarrenSands got my back.

In Boost To Clinton, Spanish-Language Networks Team Up To Register Arizona Latinos — 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.

Clinton Latino Operation, Going Beyond Obama In '12, Readies Final Trump Battle Plan — 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.

In Major Reversal, Trump Indicates To Hispanic Leaders Openness To Legalization For Immigrants — 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.

Latina Former Bush Treasurer Endorses Clinton, Blasts Trump — 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.

Sanders' Highest-Ranking Hispanic Staffer Joining Company Aimed At Young Latinos — 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.

MIA For Trump: The Spanish-Speaking Mormons Who Did Hispanic Outreach For Romney — 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.

New Clinton Florida Latino Hires Aim To Get Beyond Immigration, Charm Hispanic Media — 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.

Hispanic Florida Republican Party Spokesperson Leaves Because Of Trump — 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.

The Trump Hispanic Engagement Effort Is Sputtering

Joaquin Castro, Now In The Spotlight, To Take Aim At Trump In Speech — 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.
