Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

THE DEFINITION OF LONELY

Rate this Entry

The LA Times reports on the Nevada governor's race which has Latino Brian Sandoval seeking to become the next Republican governor of the state. Sandoval has risked alienating his Latino base by endorsing the Arizona law and tougher drivers license rules. The GOP is hoping that Latino voters will vote for someone who looks like them even if he or she supports policies that are the polar opposite of what they believe. I doubt very much that will happen. Voters vote their interests first and then may look at a person's ethnicity if two candidates are similar in their views. Here in Memphis, for example, Congressman Steve Cohen has easily won reelection despite the fact that he's white in a majority black district and despite having formidable black primary opponents. The reason - he's had a solid record voting the interests of his district. Hispanics are going to overwhelmingly vote for Rory Reid for governor in Nevada because he's pro-immigration. I'm guessing he'll get an even higher percentage of Hispanic votes than was the case in the last election for governor mainly because the national GOP has moved so far in to the anti-immigration camp.

    The latest polls indicate that the GOP is right. There are enough idiot Hispanics who plan to vote for Sandoval!

    Hispanics will NOT vote for a republican for a loooong time to come even if their last name is Lopez/Ramirez or Sanchez. On principle they will no be able to bring themselves to support a party that has done nothing but paint them as criminals.
