FILE - In this March 1, 2014 file photo, Assemblywoman Lucy Flores announces her candidacy for lieutenant governor of Nevada during an event at the College of Southern Nevada's Cheyenne campus in North Las Vegas.  After years of running few Latinos for statewide posts, Democrats are building a bench that better reflects the support they have in the Hispanic community: more than twice as many Hispanics identify as Democrats than Republicans nationally, according to polls. This year they are showcasing this bench in key states that not only have large Hispanic electorates but enough electoral votes to swing presidential elections. The shift is crucial for a party that often fails to get its Hispanic supporters to the polls. (AP Photo/Las Vegas Review-Journal, Erik Verduzco)
