Latino Council

Democrats just elected a historic number of Latinos to Congress because our party is working hard on the issues that matter: expanding the middle class, fixing our broken immigration system and educating the next generation. Representatives Cuellar and Lujan are proven leaders -- and they will bring the issues that are important to the Latino community front and center for our members and our candidates, while ensuring that we recruit and support strong Latino candidates and candidates who stand with the Latino community.
