With 29 electoral votes, the battleground state of Florida is again considered the richest toss-up state in this year's presidential election. But one constituency there is getting a lot of attention from both candidates. Hundreds of thousands of Latino voters from cities like Chicago and New York, and immigrants from the Caribbean and South America, have flooded into central Florida during the last decade. Latinos account for half of the 1.5 million people added to the state's population since 2010, and overall they account for 15 percent of the state's registered voters. While voters in northern Florida lean Republican and southern Floridians tilt Democratic, an area between Tampa Bay and Orlando is now being viewed as a swing region. NewsHour Weekend Correspondent Ivette Feliciano reports on issues that may sway Latino voters.
