Democrats Courting Latinos in Western Kansas

Democratic activists are working to organize Latino voters in western Kansas.

Kansas is a red state. Western Kansas is deep red and can usually be counted upon to vote reliably Republican. But the demographics of that part of the state are changing and Democrats in western Kansas say if they can get the attention of Latinos, they could win some races.
