The Americano / AP. Republican Governor of Nevada, Brian Sandoval, the first Hispanic governor of that state, is helping a conservative Hispanic political group get their message out.
The Hispanic Leadership Network announced this week that Gov. Sandoval had joined its 14-member board of national committee members.
Sandoval said in a statement that he would use the position to share his views and insight on rebuilding the American dream for Hispanics and other Americans.
The group wants to persuade Hispanic voters in swing states including Nevada, Florida and New Mexico that conservative candidates are better suited to repair the nation’s wounded economy.
An initiative of the American Action Network, the Hispanic Leadership Network is a sustained effort to engage the Hispanic Community on center-right issues that will restore opportunity and prosperity in America.
The Hispanic Leadership Network held its inaugural conference in January 2011 with co-chairs Governor Jeb Bush, former Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez and over 600 Hispanic leaders from across the country.
The Hispanic Leadership Network has been building on the momentum from events like that one through a national grassroots and communications effort.
The Hispanic Leadership Network works and strategizes with Hispanic leaders across the country to issue conservative policy recommendations based on solid research that will support the advancement of the Hispanic community in education, jobs and small business, homeownership, family values and immigration.
