A team of Republicans are meeting today in Miami to begin plans for a GOP outreach to Hispanics for the 2014 cycle, HispanicBusiness has confirmed.
The team includes former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who is on the national advisory committee of the Hispanic Leadership Network (HLN), one of the organizations behind the planning.
It is a "preliminary gathering to discuss the importance of the Hispanic community," said a spokesperson for HLN.
Also expected to attend the meeting are former Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez and Rosario Marin, former U.S. Treasurer under President George W. Bush, and HLN executive director Jennifer Korn and former Texas Rep. Quico Canseco.
HLN's National Advisory Committee members also include Rudy Beserra, VP of Latin Affairs at Coca-Cola, Canseco, and Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart, (FL-21).
Update: The meeting has ended with what seems a positive turnout.
"The thoughtful contributions from all our attendees resulted in a very successful meeting," HLN Communications Director Emily Benavides told HispanicBusiness. "Today we laid out the plan for the next few years on how to engage the Hispanic community on center-right issues as we look forward to the future."
