It’s Been A Minute: How Latino Voter Outreach Still Falls Short

In this special episode from It’s Been A Minute With Sam Sanders, Sam dives into the short falls of Latino voter outreach.

Latinos are the second largest group of eligible voters by race or ethnicity in the United States, but they continue to be misunderstood and underappreciated by political campaigns of all parties.

Sam talks to Lisa García Bedolla, a scholar of Latino politics, about how the word “Latino” encompasses diverse communities of all political stripes and life experiences, and he checks in with the former mayor of a small town in Texas who’s been thinking of Latino voter outreach for a long time.
