The first-time Latino voters
This short piece authored by Alexi McCammond in Axios states, among other things, that Texas is the state to watch right now given Democrats' goal of turning our state blue.
We can only be hopeful.
The 2020 election marks the first time in history that Latinos will be the largest minority ethnic or racial group in the electorate, with 32 million eligible voters.
Why it matters: A surge in Latino voters could help Democrats up and down the ballot. But since 1996, most eligible Latino voters have not voted in presidential elections, according to the Pew Research Center.
