Ken Salazar: Latinos & Obama’s 2012 Pitch
At the recent NALEO conference in San Antonio, Texas News Taco had the opportunity to ask U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar about President Obama’s campaign and the importance of Latino voters to his victory.
Salazar told us that, just as Latino voters were essential in 2008, they will be essential in 2012. What’s more, he highlighted the appointment of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, advances in education and the employment of many Latinos, women and other diverse hiring practices within his own realm of the Interior Department, as well as across the Obama Administration.
