Election 2012: The Latino Vote

We speak to Republican delegates from Maryland and Virginia about the party's challenges in wooing Hispanic voters and where they feel Republicans may actually have an advantage.

The Republican Party is about to unveil a party platform in Tampa, Fla., that takes a hard-line on issues important to many Latinos, particularly immigration.
