The Census Bureau reports that in 2020 an estimated 32 million Latinos will be eligible to vote, making them the largest minority group — and the most likely to tip the presidential election.

The Democratic presidential candidates seem well aware of this, as the majority are including Latinos in their rhetoric ahead of this week’s CNN-sponsored debates.

Gustavo Valdes, a correspondent for CNN en Espanol, stopped by “Morning Edition” and spoke to host Lisa Rayam briefly before heading to the debates Tuesday and Wednesday.
