WASHINGTON (AP) - Some of the strategies discussed at the Republican National Committee meeting this week to appeal to Hispanic voters.
- Ask Republican leaders at the local level to reach out to Hispanic community leaders, talk about the party and address concerns about the GOP raised by the Democrats.
- Aggressively advertise to ask Hispanics to keep an open mind and note that Republican politicians like George W. Bush are very interested in winning their vote.
- Promote Bush's education policies as a way of appealing to young Hispanic families with school-age children.
- Sell tax cuts as beneficial for working Hispanic families.
- Court Hispanics who are new to the country so that when they become citizens, Republicans can help them register to vote.
- Target states with growing Hispanic populations, especially in the Sun Belt and South, to keep those states from tilting toward Democrats.
- Target party activities toward Hispanics like several events at this inaugural to make it clear that Hispanics are very welcome in the Republican Party.
- Place Hispanics in high-profile roles within the party, such as Cabinet appointments, to help sell the idea that Hispanics have a home in the GOP.
