Former Vice President Joe Biden speaks at a rally organized by Mi Familia Vota, a national Latino voting group, in Las Vegas on Jan. 11, 2020.

  On this edition of Your Call, we’re getting an update on what the Biden campaign is doing to secure the Latino vote. This year, 32 million Latinos are eligible to vote, which will make up the largest non-white voting bloc in US history.

Both campaigns are spending millions on TV, social media and radio ads to reach Spanish-speaking voters in key battleground states. So far, Biden has spent more. How are Latino communities responding?
