New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie Thursday emphasized the need for the Republican Party to draw more Hispanic voters to its side.

He joins a parade of Republicans making that point since President Barack Obama crushed Mitt Romney 71 to 27 percent among Latino voters in November.

“We cannot expect to get support from the Latino community if we don’t make the Latino community feel welcome and important in our party,” Christie, who is running for re-election this year, said while accepting the endorsement of a group of Latino leaders in New Brunswick, The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The endorsement came from the Latino Leadership Alliance Political Action Committee.

“It’s been the Republican Party that has always stood at the forefront of choice for parents on educational opportunity, and it’s been the Republican Party that has always believed in the rights of the individual,” Christie said.

“[Everyone] here in the Latino community, a community that is steeped in faith, understands that our faith in the country comes from the power of the individual to be able to pursue their faith openly, vigorously, and in way they believe helps to build and strengthen their families.”
