“We had evangelical Latinos wanting to meet with Howard Dean at the DNC,” Finney said. “That’s a shift, right? We saw in droves the Latino community moving over to the Democratic Party largely because of the tone. Even Republicans in the Republican Party who were Latino [were] just disgusted with the tone.
