KC La Raza Political Club Endorsed Mike Sharp Over Jackson County Sheriff Forté
This one was a surprise for TKC and didn't learn about it until a trip to the ballot this afternoon . . . Also, I like how everything in that post title grosses out our suburban friends.
Here's the bigger picture that we're seeing play out at the local level as well . . .
Overall, the Black vote & the Latino vote ARE NOT aligned and haven't been so since Hillary lost in 2016.
For some odd reason and generally speaking, Latinos liked Hillary a lot more than African-American voters who stayed at home . . . But that's the past which might be prologue considering . . .
In the next presidential election, 32 million Hispanics will be eligible to vote, just slightly more than the 30 million voters who are black.
