Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One problem the Biden Campaign has had is lack of an effective outreach to Latino voters. Sanders did much better there. One symptom of Biden's problem was his choice of REPUBLICAN Ana Navarro as his Latinx outreach spokesperson. Not only is she a Republican, but her father remained in Nicaragua to fight WITH the Contras when her mother moved the family to Miami. In college Navarro raised funds for the Contras.

Perhaps Biden 'thought' Navarro would help attract Cubans, who hate communism. But why should such people vote for Biden when in Trump they have a real 'commie' basher? Meanwhile Navarro is, at best, uninspiring to non-authoritarian Central and South American emigrees. At worst she is repelant.

Perhaps Biden thought Navarro was 'strong' on 'national security' issues and she certainly is NOT a progressive. IMO, choosing her was another 'centrist' bungle.
