2020 Democratic primary calendar may boost Hispanic voter clout

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) How to pronounce Beto O'Rourke's first name "Is it BET-oh or BAY-toe?" is debated nearly everywhere the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful goes in Iowa. But Rich Salas doesn't hesitate.

"BET-oh," the chief diversity officer at Des Moines University says correctly while introducing O'Rourke at a recent gathering of an Asian and Latino political action committee. "What a really great name."

Salas notes that O'Rourke "speaks really good Spanish, better than I do," before leading chants of "Viva Beto!"

It's a rallying cry that may not resonate in Iowa, home to the nation's first presidential nominating contest, but could pay dividends faster than in previous years thanks to a primary calendar that will see the two states with the largest Hispanic populations go to the polls earlier than usual.

1. It's a shame that the first two states to vote are among the least populated and whitest of all.
