RNC Launches Florida Advisory Council

  WASHINGTON – Today, the Republican National Committee launched its Florida Hispanic Advisory Council to strengthen ties with the Hispanic community and expand engagement efforts across the state.

State advisory councils are part of the RNC’s unprecedented commitment to engage voters year-round to build a lasting foundation for future campaigns. Council members will lend their expertise in developing better, more effective engagement strategies between the RNC, the state party, county parties and communities across the state. The Florida Hispanic Advisory Council will complement the work of the RNC and our National Advisory Councils.
 
“The Republican Party is working to build genuine and permanent relationships with Hispanics across Florida, and our state advisory council will help make that a reality,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “Each council member brings a unique perspective and I look forward to working with them to grow the Republican Party in their communities.”
 
“We look forward to the council’s guidance as we continue to strengthen the RNC’s Hispanic engagement efforts,” said RNC Co-Chairman Sharon Day. “We welcome their input and advice as we take our message to the Hispanic community in my home state of Florida.”
  
“Over the last year, the RNC has made an unprecedented effort to engage Hispanic communities across Florida and around the country,” said Florida State Senator Anitere Flores. “The principles of the Republican Party resonate with the Hispanic community and are the natural home for those who share our values. I am proud to be part of the RNC’s state advisory council to ensure our party has a year-round engagement effort that effectively shares our message with Hispanics across the country.”
 
“RNC Chairman Priebus is making good on his promise to make the Hispanic community a priority and I look forward to sharing our vision with voters across the country,” said Luis Hernandez, Orlando radio talk show host and political commentator.
