House Republican members launched a new campaign arm on Tuesday — the Hispanic Leadership Trust (HLT).
The new organization will “[support] Hispanic and Latino Members and Candidates to Congress who believe in the American Dream – namely freedom, opportunity, and the aspiration for exceptionalism,” according to a press release.
“Why now? Why build this out? One, I mean, the country’s falling apart,” Texas Republican Rep. Tony Gonzales, who will lead the organization with Florida Republican Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, said at a press conference about the HLT. “Democrat policies have failed time and time again. Hispanic communities have had enough.”
“We’re talking life-long Democrats that feel abandoned by this administration,” Gonzales said. “That’s not enough for them to come over to the Republican Party. We have to show up. We have to deliver and we have to offer a different solution.”
.@TonyGonzales4TX: “Hispanic Americans are no different than other Americans… I may like spicy food a bit more but we’re all Americans. And the Hispanic Leadership Trust reminds us of that.”
