The Latino Vote

To compete with Democratic rival Sen. Hillary Clinton, the Obama campaign is reaching out to Latino voters ahead of Super Tuesday. But some observers say that the Sen. Obama faces a tough challenge because of Clinton's strong and long-standing ties with Hispanics. The Latino vote comprises roughly 9% of eligible voters nationwide. Hispanics in New Jersey represent 3% of all eligible voters nationally.Produced and reported by Ben de la Cruz/washingtonpost.com
