Republicans ramp up minority outreach
Republicans are ramping up their recruitment of minority candidates in an effort to combat the demographic trends that helped hand them stinging losses in November.
Party officials on Wednesday announced the creation of The Future Majority Caucus, a group of Hispanic politicians who will advise the party on its efforts to recruit more state-level minority candidates. The caucus will be co-chaired by New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval.
The Republican State Leadership Committee last cycle launched an effort to recruit more women and minority candidates, but it only netted one Hispanic elected official nationally after November's blowout. Republicans lost big partly because women and minorities are increasingly turning against the GOP.
