WASHINGTON (Legal Newsline) – The Republican National Committee has established its latest Hispanic Advisory Council, targeting Hispanic voters in Pennsylvania.

On Friday the RNC, in conjunction with the Republican party of Pennsylvania, launched the Pennsylvania Hispanic Advisory Council to strengthen ties with the Hispanic community and expand engagement efforts across the state, according to the RNC’s website.

“The Republican Party is working to build genuine and permanent relationships with Hispanics across Pennsylvania, and our state advisory council will help make that a reality,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “Each council member is a leader in their own community and brings a unique perspective, and I look forward to working with them to grow the Republican Party in their communities.”

State advisory councils are part of the RNC’s effort to engage Hispanic voters year-round to build a permanent foundation for future campaigns at the state and local levels.

Since March 2o13, the RNC has launched a National Hispanic Advisory Council as well as state councils in California, Florida, New Jersey and Texas. In the upcoming months, the RNC will launch six more councils across the country.

“The Republican Party is excited to be showcasing our shared values of individual freedom and economic opportunity with Pennsylvania’s Hispanic community,” said PA GOP Chairman Rob Gleason. “Our Hispanic Advisory Council is the latest step in celebrating the growing role of the Hispanic community in the Republican Party.”

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 RNC website states.

The Pennsylvania Hispanic Advisory Council will complement the work of the RNC and the National Advisory Council.

“It is vital that we are out in our communities early and often, because face-to-face contacts between volunteers and voters living in the same community is the best way to engage, inform and mobilize someone to vote Republican,” said Dr. Myers, Pennsylvania Hispanic Advisory Council chair.
