The Most Influential Latino Politicians in the United States (BRACKET CLOSED)

Over the next two weeks, as the Republican National Convention and Democratic National Convention get into gear, we'll be taking a hard look at Latino politicians, on both sides of the aisle, who have influence over the policies that effect our community. As we do this digging, we want to hear from you!

Help us decide once and for all: who is the most influential Latino politician? It is Marco Rubio? Does Bob Menendez beat Susana Martinez out? You tell us. Vote and keep checking back in on this bracket. If we missed anyone that you feel is influential, please tell us in the comments.
