Michigan Latino leaders back Clinton


Prior to Michigan’s advanced presidential primary of January 15, 2008, according to Larry C. Arreguin (chair, Michigan Democratic Party Hispanic/Latino Caucus), the support for Democratic presidential candidate Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton grew with the endorsements by numerous Democratic Latino leaders. But again, democratic candidates Barack Obama and John Edwards voluntarily pulled their names from this primary and refused to campaign in Michigan.

The list is a group of community, business, and political leaders from Michigan, lead by State Representative Lee Gonzáles of Flint, Lupe Ramos-Montigny (second vice chair of the MDP), and Arreguin. In addition, Lily Cavanagh (president, Michigan Spanish-Speaking Democrats), Nino Rodríguez (publisher Adelante Magazine), and Rebecca Luga (chair, State of Michigan American G.I. Forum) have signed on in support of Clinton’s presidential bid.


“We believe that Senator Clinton has the best strategic plan of action to put our country back on track. We are strongly convinced that she is the best candidate for all the people in a time of great need for experienced leadership,” said Larry C. Arreguin of Detroit.
