Obama: Wooing Latinos

“In 2008, Barack Obama captured two-thirds of the Hispanic vote, winning in crucial swing states with large Hispanic populations like Colorado, Nevada and Florida,” NPR writes. “The president's re-election campaign is attempting to replicate that success for 2012, targeting those same states with this week's launch of its first set of Spanish-language television and radio ads.”

“First lady Michelle Obama’s campaign to support military families wins bipartisan praise. It may be good politics, too,” Bloomberg writes. “The face of the U.S. military is changing to become more diverse in gender and race, meaning the armed forces vote is less reliably Republican.”
