Latino Voters Underrepresented in CA Government

New census numbers show Latinos now outnumber Anglos in California, but Latino voting power is lagging behind the new population numbers. The difference becomes more stark when the population is compared to the number of Latinos elected to public office, where Latinos are under-represented at every level of government. Members of the Latino Legislative Caucus joined scholars and activists to discuss the issues after the release of a new report on Latino voting trends and elected representation in California. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.
