California Latino Caucus rejects Gray Davis
This is an extraordinary move by the Latino caucus.
A group of Democratic Latino lawmakers rejected an endorsement of Gov. Gray Davis’ re-election campaign Friday, angered about the governor’s veto of a measure that would have allowed illegal immigrants to get a driver’s license.
The decision by the Legislative Latino Caucus was a blow to the Davis campaign, which has relied on strong support from the traditionally Democratic Latino community. The caucus, which ostensibly represents the state’s 22 Latino Democratic lawmakers, voted four years ago to endorse Davis.
Hey, imagine there was a candidate who favored the the drivers license initiative, and who was also a Latino. Could the Latino caucus back him? Could there be such a candidate? Why yes, there is.
