Jeb Bush, who is the Republican candidate most likely to benefit by stopping his party from being so anti-Latino (he's fluent in Spanish and his wife is Latino), has an editorial in the Miami Herald advocating for more outreach to latinos. This is getting a big push from the Rove-connected American Action Network.

The problem for Bush and Rove is that nativism is a key part of the conservative coalition, and after Obama won back the Latino vote from the GOP's gains in 2004 many conservatives/Republicans would rather pander to the hate and vitriol they know than modernizing themselves.
