For Latino Voters, Obama Has Catching Up to Do

Hispanic Democrats have warned presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama that he risks losing the Latino vote in the general election if he does not reach out to Hispanic voters.

Likely Republican candidate John McCain has already made some inroads with Latinos; Hillary Clinton worked hard during the primary season to win their support, as well.

Obama's national Latino vote director met with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus today.

Michele Norris talks to Roberto Suro, professor of journalism at the University of Southern California and former president of the Pew Hispanic Center.
