Summary

Biden will mark Hispanic Heritage Month in an event in Kissimmee on Tuesday evening."I will talk about how I am going to work like the devil to make sure I turn every Latino and Hispanic vote," Biden told reporters on Monday about his plans for his trip to Florida.The former vice president also said that his overall support among Latino voters is "much higher" than support for Mr. Trump, but he acknowledged "they've got to go higher."Although Biden could still win the White House without Florida, the state is considered a linchpin for President Trump, who won its 29 electoral votes in 2016. Chuck Rocha, a former senior adviser to Senator Bernie Sanders' presidential campaigns, told CBSN on Monday that Biden was lagging among Latino voters in part because of "a lack of money" from his campaign on Latino outreach."The fact of the matter is there's just not money going to take that message to Latinos as there needs to be," Rocha said.Javier Fernandez, a Democrat running for the state Senate in Miami-Dade County, told CBS Miami that there did not seem to be much enthusiasm for Biden among Latino voters in Florida."I don't know that they're super excited about Joe Biden," Fernandez said.Mr. Trump has also been working to appeal to Latino voters in recent weeks.
