Latinx voters in California and Texas make up 30% of the electorate.

On this edition of Your Call, we'll disccuss the decision by major Democrats to support Joe Biden in order to stop Bernie Sanders from getting the nomination. Yesterday, Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg dropped out to support Biden. Other supporters include Beto O'Rourke, Dianne Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, and John Kerry. What difference will this make on Super Tuesday?

Later in the show, we’ll discuss get out the vote efforts. According to the Pew Research Center, a record 32 million Latinos are eligible to vote this year. More than half of all eligible Latinx voters live in Super Tuesday states. And what about young people, a group that doesn’t vote in large numbers. Will that change on Super Tuesday? What is the ground game of candidates in states like Texas and California?
