Candidates Court Latino Voters at Major Conference

Both presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama spoke at the annual conference of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) on Tuesday, part of their effort to court the Latino vote.

A roundtable of Latino voters share their thoughts about both candidates' speeches, and talk about issues they see as crucial to winning the Hispanic vote. Included in the panel are: Aracely Panameno, of Latinos for Obama in Prince William County, Virginia; Maria Teresa Petersen, executive director of Voto Latino, and Xavier Rivas, a Spanish-language radio show host.
