The 2016 Presidential campaign season is in full swing and while anyone could win the election, the window of opportunity seems to be shutting for Republican candidates. I had thought one of the lessons learned by the Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee after the 2008 elections was that they need to start building bridges with the all important Latino community.
With California and New York solidly in the Democrat’s back pocket (California last voted for a Republican President in 1988 and New York in 1984) and states like Texas where 38% and Florida where 23% of the population identify as Latino, you have to wonder who are these Republican candidates listening to and what do they think the general electorate thinks of their xenophobic rhetoric.

Today is my first day back in the office after spending a wonderfully long weekend with friends in Provincetown. Point is I’m not feeling all that inspired so I thought I’d go with a man candy post to buy me some time.
I hope you are having an easier time adjusting back to the work week than I am.
