Spanish-language television network Univision has invited President Barack Obama and his Republican opponent Mitt Romney to debate Hispanic issues on the air.
The invitation came after the Commission on Presidential Debates declined to hold a "forum" moderated by a Univision anchor that would address Latino issues, Politico
“In a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates, Univision Network expressed its disagreement with the way the moderators for the Presidential Debates were chosen, which did not include any Hispanic or African-American journalists,” Univision anchor Jorge Ramos said on the air Wednesday.
“A day after the announcement of the presidential debate moderators, two male and two female non-Hispanic whites, Univision's President and CEO, Randy Falco, addressed a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates expressing his disagreement and requesting the commission to hold an additional debate covering Hispanic issues.”
As the commission declined, and said it wouldn’t sponsor another debate, “Univision network invited President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney to participate in a forum to talk directly to Hispanic voters,” Ramos said.
“Hispanics as a voting group are the fastest growing in the country, and it is estimated that 12 million Latinos will vote in the November presidential election. If you want to give your opinion regarding this issue on Twitter, use the hash tag #DebateUnivision.”
