As the 2016 Republican presidential field bickers over Mexican immigrants and immigration reform, Florida GOP Chairman Blaise Ingoglia submitted an op-ed to Spanish-language television giant Univision about his party's campaign for the White House.
Ingoglia doesn't speak Spanish. But the party's bilingual communications director, Wadi Gaitan, said Ingoglia can read it and understand some Spanish -- and more importantly cared enough about reaching out to Hispanics to have his ideas shared in their language. Nearly 15 percent of Florida voters identify as Hispanic.
"Mothers and fathers, Hispanics and young people, all will have an opportunity to decide which candidate has the leadership and right plan for our country," Ingoglia wrote (the translation is ours). "For that reason, the Republican Party of Florida is committed to having an open conversation about our vision of a better future, full of opportunities and economic growth."
Ingoglia also pledged to help campaigns and "open offices where people have an opportunity to support the candidate."
He concluded by touting the party's redesigned website -- which, however, is not quite as fleshed-out in Spanish.
This post has been corrected to note a version of the GOP website exists in Spanish, though it's not as robust.
