In Fox News Latino: Mitt Romney: First Gringo-Latino President?

TWLC's Viviana Hurtado in Fox News Latino on Mitt Romney: First Gringo-Latino President?

The Latinada in Florida and revelations that Romney has Mexican roots was the perfect opportunity for me to write about a theme that’s been haunting me since I got dinged from Jarbard as a senior in high school. The preppy ol’ viejito asked me what my ‘rents thought about me applying to college because girls like you start having […]

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado on Sirius XM's P.O.T.U.S Politics Radio on Puerto Rico Primary, Election 2012, The Latino Vote

Florida’s primary was the first nominating contest which put the Latino vote in focus.  While not a huge portion of the Sunshine state’s Republican primary base, make no mistake: Hispanic voters are here to stay. Duh, Sherlock, of course in South Florida where the powerful Cuban-American community bolsters business, politics, and the arts. But let […]

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado in Fox News Latino on Jacksonville, FL GOP Debate

The GOP Debates are to policy wonks and political junkies what American Idol is to middle American: drama, underdogs, audiences whooping, yelping, booing, and high-fiving I’m sure, if CNN had turned the cameras more on the audience. At the center of this spectacle are the four remaining GOP presidential nominee hopefuls in the run up […]

TWLC's Viviana Hurtado Talks GOP Iowa Caucus on CNNE's Café CNN

U.S. politics fascinates people all around the world. I learned that early on, having caught the travel bug early thanks to Mami and Papi who splurged on education and vacations abroad (Big Bro, Lil’ Sis, and I did not get cars at 16, nor weekly shopping sprees growing up.  “Not a good inbestment,” Mami would […]
