Commentary has received some feedback regarding a past daily commentary about campaign teams. Yes, there are very capable Latinos in town that could run any campaign. There are Latinos out there that also do a pretty good job at campaign fundraising. They just need to be approached and asked.
Commentary won't mention their names for fear that they may get the big head.
It is too bad that there are still some "progressives" out there that have the mindset that Latino operatives are only capable of handling Latino outreach. In their itty, bitty minds, they think that only Anglo consultants can help them reach the promise land.
Local Latinos can walk, chew gum, and run campaigns - all at the same time.
