The rise of Latinos up the ranks of the Republican Party is momentous, but it’s not enough, said the head of a national group of conservative activists.
“Latinos need to get more involved and show up at the polls,” Al Cardenas, the chairman of the American Conservative Union, or ACU, told Fox News Latino.
The prominent Cuban American lawyer and advisor to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney expressed concern about Latino voter turnout, but said he is ecstatic about the Republican National Convention speakers lineup that includes U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, U.S. Senate candidate Ted Cruz of Texas, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval.
