4,000 Latino leaders to brainstorm on strategy

CHICAGO -- Riding the wave of recent success at the polls, about 4,000 Latino leaders are meeting in Chicago this week to lay out strategies to increase their electoral strength. The annual gathering of the U.S. Hispanic Leadership Institute will hold training workshops for would-be candidates and campaign managers, in addition to seminars on immigration, labor and other topics.

Juan Andrade, president of the Chicago-based group, said organizers are encouraged by the recent victories of U.S. Senate candidates Ken Salazar in Colorado and Mel Martinez in Florida.

Hispanics could hold up to a quarter of all congressional seats by 2040 if their numbers continue to increase, Andrade said Thursday.

"It's like an avalanche," he said. "It starts off slow, but once it picks up speed, it overwhelms everything in its path. That's the future of Latino politics."
