Latinos souring on Schwarzenegger and his party

In an open letter, a group of Republicans says the GOP is ‘politically stupid.

As he
prepares to launch his reelection bid, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is
facing attack from a group of fellow Republicans who condemn his record
on Latino appointments and assail the state GOP as “morally wrong and
politically stupid” in its treatment of Latino candidates.

In an unusual open letter drafted for
release today, the activists offer a litany of political grievances and
assert that “the California Republican Party and its key leaders are
systematically excluding Latinos from any kind of meaningful role in
the state party or state government.”

The letter noted that Schwarzenegger has no Latinos in his cabinet or in senior positions.
