cruz2Miami-  Texas Senator Ted Cruz addressed the attendees at the annual Cuba-Democracy PAC luncheon and covered a wide range of issues of interest to Hispanics as well as the Republican party’s prospects of making greater inroads with this increasingly important voter demographic that has been trending Democrat of late.  I asked Cruz directly if he believes the Hispanic vote is still in play for Republicans-

Absolutely! I think if we look historically the Hispanic community has been a swing vote, and I think that’s good for our community.  It’s never good for a community for one party to take it for granted. – Sen. Ted Cruz

I think why Republicans did so poorly in the Hispanic community this last election was not primarily immigration, I think it was two words- 47 percent.  And by that I don’t mean that unfortunate comment… What I mean is the narrative of the last election. The 47% percent who are dependent on government- we don’t have to worry about them.  I can’t think of an idea that is more antithetical to what we believe as conservatives and Americans than that idea.

“Republicans did a poor job last time around…is making the case to the single mom, making the case to the young African American, the young Hispanic coming out of school looking for his first job that the party of opportunity is a party that allows and encourages small businesses to thrive and encourages economic growth.” – Sen. Ted Cruz
