Washington State Democrats Courting the Latino Vote

Latinos traditionally vote Democratic, come election time. Northwest Democrats want to keep it that way.

Rosario: “If we sleep through this election, we’ll lose a lot, which is why we’re trying to get the vote out.”
Tania Maria Rosario is the director of the 2006 Democratic Latino Vote Project in Washington state.
