CA: Fiorina and Hispanic Voters

David Siders reports at the Sacramento Bee:

In a bid to reach out to Latino voters, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina campaigned in Sacramento on Saturday with former Bush administration Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, a well-known advocate of creating a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

But Fiorina declined to say whether she agrees with Gutierrez on the issue.


Edgar Calderon, a Fiorina supporter and state vice chairman of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly, said he planned to ask Fiorina about immigration but ran out of time. Asked about her refusal to address a path to citizenship, he said, "Remember, politicians are politicians."

He said, "Next time she comes to town, we're going to have those questions for her."
