WASHINGTON – Over the next several weeks, the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) will honor National Hispanic Heritage Month by highlighting many Hispanic Republican leaders serving their communities in every corner of the country. National Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15th to October 15th and celebrates the many achievements of Hispanics across America.
“During National Hispanic Heritage Month, people across the country come together to celebrate our rich culture, strong family values, and unwavering work ethic,” said Jeanette Nuñez, Lieutenant Governor of Florida. “Our parents, grandparents, and those who came before us carved a path to build the American dream for our families, and it is upon us to carry out that same dream for generations to come.”
“As we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, we must always recognize the vital role Hispanic culture has played in shaping American history and our future. We’re grateful for the thousands of Hispanic leaders across the country and their contributions to our great nation,” said Austin Chambers, RSLC President.
“Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates not only the heritage of our ancestors, but the struggle they endured to fight for the freedoms and liberties we all cherish today. It’s a reminder that we must also do our part to ensure democracy in this great country and continue to grow diverse leadership in all levels of government,” said Edith Jorge-Tuñón, RSLC Political Director and leader of RSLC’s efforts to recruit, support, and elect diverse Republicans across the country.
The Republican State Leadership Committee works with key in-state leaders to identify, recruit, train and support candidates who better reflect the full diversity of our nation. The efforts are helping to build a strong bench of current and future Republican leaders and has helped elect hundreds of new diverse Republican down ballot candidates.
