TAMPA, FL - Illinois Republican Party co-chair Gabriela Wyatt knows the importance of attracting Latino voters in November. She also knows it's an uphill climb for the GOP to make inroads with the nation's fastest-growing demographic.
Some polls show Latino voters favoring President Barack Obama 2-1 over Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Wyatt, a Mexican-born resident of Aurora, said Romney is saddled with years of Hispanic perceptions of Republicans.
"I think the problems are bigger than just Mitt Romney. In general, it is the Republican Party," said Wyatt, who has been vice president of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly of Illinois. "For years, Hispanics have been supporting Democrats at all levels. And Democrats have been reaching out more to Hispanics than Republicans. That's one of the facts."
