Two weeks before Election Daythe National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund will brief media and partners on the crucial impact Latino voters and candidates will have on the outcome of Election 2014.  The event will take place at 12:30 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, October 21, 2014, at the National Press Club (MWL Room) in Washington, D.C.

With Latinos on both sides of the aisle running in some of the most competitive Congressional races this year, Latino candidates are poised to play a pivotal role in Election 2014.  At the state level, Latino candidates are pursuing statewide positions across the nation, including in “nontraditional” states like Rhode Island and Wyoming.  Arturo Vargas, NALEO Educational Fund Executive Director, will take a closer look at this year’s races to watch and discuss the potential impact Latino candidates will have on the number of Latinos serving in Congress and state legislatures nationwide following Election 2014.

In addition to races involving Latino candidates, NALEO Educational Fund will examine competitive races for Governor, U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives where the Latino vote is likely to have a decisive impact.  According to NALEO Educational Fund, more than 7.8 million Latino voters are expected to cast ballots this November, up 1.2 million from the 2010 midterm elections.

Leading Latino leaders will also be on hand for an in-depth panel discussion on the impact of Latino voters and candidates this election year.  Panel participants will include Latino Victory Project President Cristobal Alex, The LIBRE Initiative Executive Director Daniel Garza and NALEO Educational Fund Executive Director Arturo Vargas.
