RNC not interested in the Latino vote

The Republican National Committee’s (RNC) actions on Friday, January 16, confirm the party’s rejection of the Latino vote and its importance in winning the White House. The Huffington Post reports that Univisión, the largest Spanish-speaking network, which reaches 96% of Hispanic households has been shut-out of the 2016 GOP primary debates for the 2016 presidential race. The only Spanish language network that will be airing a February 2016 GOP primary debate is Telemundo which is owned by NBCUniversal.
Jose Zamora, Univisión’s spokesman was quoted as saying:

No one can match Univisión’s reach and ability to inform, provide access and empower Hispanic America. Anyone who wants to reach and engage Hispanics will have to do it through Univisión. The Hispanic community deserves to hear the policies and views of all political parties and Univisión is committed to providing access to all points of view. We have an open invitation to all political parties to address our community on issues of importance and relevance. Candidates should not miss the opportunity to inform and engage with the fastest growing segment of the electorate.

The following is a list of the nine Republican Primary Presidential debates and their locations:

  1. Fox News, August 2015, Ohio
