Hispanic Republican Leaders Seek to Distance Field From Trump

Hispanic leaders are bristling at Donald Trump's characterization of Mexican immigrants as rapists and drug dealers.
Since his candidacy announcement speech that included his comments on Mexico, the Republican Presidential hopeful has paid less of a political price than a commercial one.
However, Marco Rubio, the Hispanic Republican senator from Florida , denounced them as "not just offensive and inaccurate, but also divisive."
The Senator is also running to represent the Republican Party in 2016..
It's a polarizing situation for the Republican ticket, that wants more votes from the surging Latino population.
Alfonso Aguilar, a Republican leading the American Principles Project's Latino Partnership, thinks appeasing Trump's comments will be more costly than condemning them.
He added, "the time has come...call his comments what they are: ludicrous, baseless and insulting."
