Rudy, Romney court Hispanic voters



Well, at least their surrogates are. The candidates are elsewhere.

Giuliani will launch his Hispanic outreach effort, Viva Rudy, and it will include events in Miami and Orlando on Wednesday. State. Rep. Renee Garcia, R-Hialeah, who is the Florida chairman for Giuliani's Latino voter outreach, will lead the Miami event. The Orlando event will feature U.S. Rep. Luis Fortuno of Puerto Rico.

Romney's team has a roundtable event today in Orlando featuring former Florida GOP Chairman Al Cardenas.

A recent poll for the St. Petersburg Times/Bay News 9 showed Giuliani taking 70 percent of the Hispanic vote among the Republican field. Romney had 6 percent.
