We have an interesting mix of guys this week- something for everyone's taste. There's a professional wrestler, a politician, and a recording artist.
Alberto Del Rio
Though he was defeated as WrestleMania XXVII on Sunday night, this Mexican wrestler is a star on stage and comes from a family of famous luchadores.
The 39-year-old Florida Republican U.S. senator assumed office in January. Whether you agree with his political party or not, you can't deny this Cubano's good looks.

Marco Rubio hasn’t even begun his term yet but there is already buzz that he could be the Republican nominee for vice president in 2012. Rubio is the Cuban-American senator-elect from Florida who won a hard-fought and highly publicized three-way race against Charlie Crist and Kendrick Meeks.

This last election cycle gave us several “firsts” for Latinos in politics. Susana Martinez became the first Latina governor of a U.S. state. Brian Sandoval became the first Latino governor of Nevada and Idaho elected its first Latino to congress with Raul Labrador. Marco Rubio won a senate seat once occupied by Sen. Mel Martinez, which isn’t a first—but being only one of eight Latino Republicans elected to congress is.

When we saw this editorial in the Washington Times by Mario Salazar, just the headline was enough to turn us off: Marco Rubio: Latino or Not? It reminded us of all of our readers who have told us that other Latinos made them feel bad about themselves and who they are.

With Susana Martinez being elected the first Latina governor in the history of the United States and Brian Sandoval becoming the first Hispanic to win a gubernatorial seat in Nevada, we started thinking about the historical implications of these election results.

Political fervor is at an all-time high today with people heading to the polls for Election Day. We wanted to step back and take a look at two Latinos who have been making waves on either side of aisle in American politics. Julian Castro, the young mayor of San Antonio has been hailed as "the next Obama" by some in Democratic circles. While Marco Rubio has managed to shake up the current senate race by galvanizing the Tea party movement in Florida where he is facing off against Charlie Crist and Kendrick Meeks.

Next Tuesday is election day and the nation is watching the Latino community to see what our impact will be. Here is a round up of the important races and issues that affect our community.
Senate candidate Marco Rubio is ahead of Democrat Kendrick Meek and independent Charlie Crist in the race for congressional office. Rubio has been making waves as the Tea Party's Latino darling and it looks like he just might run away with the seat because Democrats are split between Crist and Meek.
