Latino Vote Helps Bernie Sanders Surge to Victory in Colorado in Massive Democratic Caucus Turnout

ERIKA ANDIOLA: Here, the Latino community is learning more and more about Bernie Sanders. We started at a disadvantage. Obviously, you know, we had an opponent that has been very well known within the Latino community, but who didn’t have the Latino community entirely on her side. And I think Bernie, every time he speaks, every time that he comes out, and the more and more momentum we gain, the more Latinos are able to learn who he is and the message that he brings. And more and more Latinos are getting tired of the establishment. They’re getting tired of the politics that are continuing to—you know, getting us stuck. We can’t get immigration reform. We can’t get so many changes in our healthcare system, in our education system, and that is because of the establishment politics. And Latinos are seeing it more and more. And they are definitely "feeling the Bern."

1. I thought Hillary had the Latino vote locked up

on account of her abuela.

2. So they say.

I find if people give Bernie the time and listen he usual does draw them in.

8. Watch for this in Az too. Raul Grijalva head of Progressive Caucus in US Congress is a

huge Bernie supporter.

There are several Latino groups that have mobilized for Bernie throughout AZ.

Latest poll is now showing Hillary in the lead but that can change (3/22) - even if she does win, check out the Latino turnout for Bernie.
