Helen Aguirre Ferré named national GOP's director of Hispanic outreach

The RNC on Wednesday said Floridian Helen Aguirre Ferré will become the new director of Hispanic outreach, a job made more challenging by the party’s nominee Donald J. Trump.

She replaces Ruth Guerra, who is leaving over apparent disagreement with Trump.

Ferré most recently served as an advisor to Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign an has worked as a journalist in Florida, including Univision America Radio.

“I’m excited to welcome Helen Aguirre Ferré as our new Director of Hispanic Communications,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a release. “Helen will be an integral part of our Party’s ongoing commitment to build relationships and communicate our message directly with Hispanic voters. Her wealth of experience is complemented by a keen strategic vision, top-notch communication skills, and outstanding leadership qualities, and she is going to be a tremendous asset to the RNC as we seek to stop Hillary Clinton and elect a Republican president."

Ferre said: “I am proud to be joining the RNC at such a critical time. This is one of the most important elections of our lifetime, and I’m eager to make the case to the Hispanic community why Republican ideas and values are the way forward for our country after eight years of an Obama agenda which has failed all Americans.”
