Navigating the Latino Republican Wilderness of CO

Josh Penry is the minority leader of the Colorado state Senate and is currently running for Governor of Colorado. When he was elected in 2006, Penry was the youngest member of the Colorado state Senate at the age of 31.

Now Penry is trying to channel his early success in the race for Governor. Recently he spoke to the Republican National Hispanic Assembly of Colorado hoping to sway the ever growing Latino electorate. Colorado, the home state of Tom Tancredo is an intersting case study for Hispanic  Conservatives on outreach of the GOP.

According to the Denver Post, he said, Republican concerns mirror Latino concerns: jobs, the economy and education reform.
