Hillary Clinton might have some issues with latino voters after this one.
In WikiLeaks’ most recent dump of emails from John Podesta, the Clinton Campaign chairman encourages Hillary to reach out to the voting block, calling them “needy.”
In an email from August of 2015 with the subject line “Needy Latinos and 1 easy call”, Podesta encourages Clinton aid Huma Abedin to tell Clinton to consider calling former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and former Energy Secretary Federico Pena and ask personally for their endorsement.
