Hispanics Now California's Largest Ethnic Group

at 9:00 AM

Hispanics reached a historic milestone in California last week: they are now the Golden State's largest single ethnic group, according to new U.S. Census estimates. The new data confirms projections made last year by California's Department of Finance. But while Hispanics make up 39 percent of the state's population, they still lag when it comes to voter turnout and political clout. We'll talk about what the demographic shift means for state and national politics.

Guests:

Gary Segura, professor, department of political science at Stanford University and co-founder and principal at Latino Decisions, a polling and research firm.

Hector Barajas, GOP consultant, co-founder of Grow Elect a Republican organization that helps elect Latino candidates across California
