NYC Latino Voters Crucial to Mayor Race

Looks like New York City mayor candidates should be busy seeking out the Latino vote.

According to The Huffington Post, Hispanics could possibly make up a quarter of potential voters in NYC's mayoral election.

"This is the great X-factor in this election," said Democratic mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio. "This is a community that is politically independent in the sense of being open minded, and a big, big piece of the vote. And we are making it very central to our strategy."

There are presently 13 candidates running for mayor of NYC this year, including former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion, Jr. and Staten Island's Rev. Erick Salgado.
