Conservative Hispanic group to launch next week in Las Vegas

A new group designed to cut into the Democratic domination of the burgeoning Hispanic vote in Nevada will launch next week in Las Vegas. powered by national conservative groups and designed to have an impact in November.

The organization, called Nevada Hispanics, is linked to American Principles in Action, which does not hide its ideology. The kickoff is one week from today at the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce and features local Americans for Prosperity boss Adam Stryker. Niger Innis, the local guy for the Congress of Racial Equality; Nelson Santiago, the group's spokesman, and Alfonso Aguilar, the head of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, also are expected to speak.

A solicitation that went out this week told recipients: "This is an opportunity to learn about Nevada Hispanics, and our mission of garnering greater Latino support for Conservative causes and candidates in our state."

Can this be successful? It will depend on money, execution and the all-powerful media....
