From WNYC.org:

“NEW YORK, NY April 15, 2008 —In the 2008 Democratic primaries so far, the percentage of the vote that is Latino has risen dramatically. In California, for example, Latino voter participation in the primary doubled over 2004, and in Texas it increased by 50 percent.
Now, candidates are getting increasingly sophisticated in they way they’re targeting Hispanics.
As part of our occasional series, Feet in Two Worlds, Martina Guzman traveled to Pennsylvania, which has a small – but growing –

Latino population.”
