Republican Congressman Raul Labrador said Wednesday that Mitt Romney’s unpopularity among Hispanics was key to his defeat and that Republicans must press for immigration reform or give up on electing a GOP president. “We are never going to be a majority party if we don’t figure out a way to reach out to the Hispanic community,” said Labrador, a native of Puerto Rico re-elected to his second term. “So we have to find a conservative consensus on immigration.” Labrador spoke during a Capitol Hill news conference sponsored by a group he co-chairs, Conversations with Conservatives. The hour-long news conference is archived on C-SPAN/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman Politics Blog. More here.
Question: Do you think national Republicans will heed Labrador's warning?
