Rep. Luis Gutierrez Gives Romney a Latinos 101 Lesson on House Floor

 

 U.S. House of Representative Luis V. Gutierrez of Illinois’ Fourth District in the heart of Chicago spoke on the floor of the House earlier this week about recent comments by GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Rep. Gutierrez said that the nation’s 50 million Latinos, most of whom are citizens and eligible voters, is a lot of people, “especially if you want to offend each and every one of us. But to Mitt Romney’s credit — he’s trying.”
