Latino GOP group Somos Republicans endorsed Newt Gingrich for president today, noting in a statement:
We believe Newt Gingrich knows the importance of the Latino community. 50 million Latinos comprise 16% of our country’s population today. Half of our country’s population growth in the next 20 years will be generated by the growth in the Latino population. Latinos have become a key driver of our nation’s future. While the other candidates seem oblivious to this fact, Newt Gingrich has been working hard for many years to include American Hispanics in the overall conversation for a better America.
