The Republican National Committee is trying to forge inroads with Black, Hispanic and Asian Americans through a network of community centers across the country. The party has opened 20 centers in several swing states and plans to open more in the run-up to the midterm elections in November. A center that opened in Houston this week caters to a Hispanic neighborhood. Like the other community centers, it offers a variety of events and services and gives insight into Republican Party beliefs.
“At the end of the day, we know that Hispanics belong in the Republican Party,” said Macarena Martinez, the RNC’s Texas communications director. “We’re grounded within the same ideology of safety, freedom and economic opportunity.”
