DEMS on Univision to Debate in Miami; GOP Ignores Latinos: ¿Qué le preguntarías a los candidatos?

Sept. 9, 2007.
Candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination will be in Coral Gables tonight for a debate to be broadcast across the nation in Spanish on UNIVISION. Juan Guillermo Tornoe writes in Hispanic Trending:
The event at The University of Miami is billed as the first of its kind. Candidates will be asked questions in Spanish, which will be translated into English for those that don't speak the language. The candidates will respond in English, with their answers translated back into Spanish. Viewers who want to hear the forum in English can watch it using the closed caption service on their TVs.
¿Qué le preguntarías a los candidatos?

Prominent Spanish-language network Univision conceded last week that it would postpone a Sept. 16 forum among Republican presidential contenders after only one candidate — Arizona Sen. John McCain — announced he would attend.

Univision is the largest Spanish-language network in the United States, and has vigorously encouraged eligible viewers to apply for citizenship and vote. Hispanics represent the fastest growing segment of the U.S. electorate, growing by 50 percent over the last decade.
