Republicans tout Hispanic outreach, but focus on Obamacare

U.S. Rep. Wasserman Schultz addresses delegates during the final session of the Democratic National Convention in CharlotteBy Gabriel Debenedetti WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A year after a party review urged Republicans to embrace immigration reform to attract Hispanic voters and boost support, the party finds itself banking on the unpopularity of Obamacare for success in November’s congressional elections. Republican leaders insist they have made progress reaching out to Hispanics, who helped propel President Barack Obama and other Democrats to victory in the 2012 election. That effort has been complicated, however, by the refusal of Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives to take up comprehensive immigration reform legislation that many think could help swing Hispanics towards the party. As campaigning heats up for the November elections, Republicans now see public disaffection with Obamacare, along with the president’s low approval numbers, as their key to keeping control of the House and retaking the Senate from Democrats.
