Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is only speaking for one minute.
A group of 225 DNC delegates petitioned for her to “be given enough time to demonstrate respect for her and the constituencies she represents.”
Why it matters: Latinos will be the largest non-white voting bloc in the 2020 election for the first time in history. Now, some — like Castro — are sounding the alarm on how the Democratic Party isn’t investing enough in these voters and the Latino community.
What they’re saying: “I think that we could win the battle and lose the war,” Castro told “Axios on HBO” of Democrats’ chances this fall. “We could win in November, but you could see a potential slide of Latino support for Democrats.”
