Jeffe Discusses GOP, Latino Outreach in NBC Op-Ed

August 28, 2012

NBC News Los Angeles affiliate KNBC-TV ran a column by Senior Fellow Sherry Bebitch Jeffe of the USC Price School about the Republican National Convention. Jeffe noted that former California Gov. Pete Wilson has been named an honorary California campaign chair. Wilson, who supported Proposition 187 targeting illegal immigrants, will not win GOP Latino support, Jeffe wrote. “The Romney campaign’s choice of a governor 14 years out of office, who has become a symbol for the GOP’s hard immigration stance, sends a clear signal that the national GOP has abandoned Latino outreach,” she added.
