President Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney have agreed to participate in separate "Meet the Candidate" events aimed at Hispanic voters and hosted by Univision News and Facebook.
The forums, in a news release issued by Univision, are billed as the first-ever events in which candidates for the U.S. presidency will "directly address topics of importance to the Hispanic community." The discussions will be in Spanish and English and topics will include "education and the future" of the country's growing Hispanic population. Univision will get the conversation started in advance on its Facebook page. The dates of the forums have not yet been set.
