A Nevada Democratic Party official has been caught trashing Hispanic voters in an undercover video in the run-up to the critical midterm elections.
Isaac Gudino, a “Nevada Democratic Victory Field Organizer,” was filmed bashing Hispanics in a video published by conservative activist James O’Keefe’s undercover journalism group Project Veritas.
In the video, Gudino admits that Latinos voting Republican will be a key factor if the Democrats lose on Tuesday.
He explains that the once-Democrat-friendly Hispanic demographic has clearly moved further to the right than the Democratic Party cares to admit.
The Nevada Senate race pits Republican candidate Adam Laxalt against Nevada incumbent Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto.
The election is one of the most closely watched races in this midterm cycle.
Given that the Latino vote is influential enough in Nevada to likely swing the race, the two camps have fought hard for the demographic.
The undercover video was filmed in, what appears to be, a typical campaign field office.
Gudino held nothing back as he admitted why he believes Latinos are naturally more inclined to vote Republican.
“Don’t they traditionally vote with us?” the undercover Project Veritas operative asked, with Gudino sitting nearby.
“Haven’t you ever spoken to a Hispanic?” Gudino said, attempting to explain why Hispanic voters are largely shifting to the Republicans.
“Cause, like, when you do, it makes more sense.”
He explained to another person in the room that operatives make the mistake of thinking Hispanics “only care about immigration.”
“They’re just muy machismo, like, ‘hey, you know, I don’t like gay people and s**t’,” Gudino said.
“It just, it’s normal to me, it doesn’t surprise me anymore.”
Gudino, who acknowledges in the video that he doesn’t speak Spanish but can read it slightly, goes on to expound on his infinite wisdom on Nevada Latino demographics.
The video then cuts to Gudino standing outside with the unnamed Project Veritas operative.
“No if, high key – if we lose, they’re why,” Gudino said in responding to the operative suggesting Hispanic Nevadans are “moving away” from the Democrats.
“If there’s any reason we lose, it’ll be Latino Republicans,” Gudino said.
He went on to support the claim by referencing campaign signs written in Spanish that had conservative slogans and talking points.
“I was like, oh no!” he said.
“Now they, somebody got smart enough to write their s**t in Spanish.”
Despite Gudino’s claims, however, Hispanics haven’t suddenly switched political sides simply because a Republican campaign operative began writing pro-conservative slogans in Spanish.
Hispanics are aligning with the GOP because it’s where their core values live.
Family, life, and freedom, are just a few of those core values.
Latinos, like every other demographic, buy groceries, pay for gas, and have to figure out how to pay the electric bill.
The economy is at the top of the list of concerns for a vast majority of American voters, and the party in power, the Democrats, are rightfully taking the blame for the way things are right now.
Regarding Nevada’s heated Senate race, the latest polling from Emerson College Polling, KLAS 8, News Now, and The Hill revealed that Laxalt has taken a commanding 5-point lead over Masto.
The poll of 2,000 “very likely” voters had a margin of error of 2.1 points, according to The Hill.
Several additional polls within the last week also show Laxalt holding a steady lead.
A November 4 InsiderAdvantage poll of 550 likely voters, reported by American Greatness on Saturday, not only gave Laxalt a 6-point lead over Masto, but it also revealed that Nevada Hispanics are breaking hard for Laxalt.
The poll had a margin of error of 4.2 percent.
New American Greatness/Insider Advantage (R) poll for Nevada's elections

Catherine Cortez Masto (D-inc): 44%
Joe Lombardo (R): 49%
Steve Sisolak (D-inc): 44%https://t.co/imvWEBDDol

“Those of all other races (mainly Hispanic) broke for Laxalt 56.7 percent to 27.8 percent,” American greatness reported.
It seems evident that Gudino knows that his candidate is likely to lose, and Latino voters will be one of the primary reasons.
As it turns out, Hispanics value faith, family, freedom, and fiscal responsibility more than Democratic operatives presumably realized.
