Bush, he raised a lot of funds and moneys for the presidential campaigns of George W. Bush, Charles Garcia is considered one of the Top Hispanic Men in Business.

    Charles Patrick García (born 1961) had recently started Garcia Trujillo LLC, a consulting, merchant banking, and venture capital firm where he is the Chief Executive Officer. He also publishes many books on leadership, motivation and going into Business.

    Obama could even lose Florida and Ohio and get reelected.

    Arizona and Missouri could be flipped to Blue ( Democrat Party ) - These six states : Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico and North Carolina are very possible for Obama.

    Republican Candidates are pandering to extremists and Tea Party and will be rejected on general election time by Latinos.

    "Arizona's losses have totaled $141 million in conference cancellations alone and $253 million in overall economic output. In 2011, Georgia suffered a $300 million estimated loss in harvested crop statewide, with a $1 billion total estimated impact on Georgia's economy. The fallout continues. Just yesterday, the American Educational Research Association, one of the largest educational organizations in the country, announced its decision to move its 2013 annual conference out of Georgia and to a state where all its members would feel welcome"
