(CNSNews.com) - Marco Rubio—a pro-life, pro-free-market, limited-government conservative—was elected to the U.S. Senate from Florida on Tuesday, winning 55 percent of the Latino vote in the process, according the network television exit poll conducted by Edison Research.

Apparently Republicans can have the Hispanic vote with good candidates (and hot wives ).Interesting to know.

Cuban/American people know what a "fine life" their relatives back on the island have. They want NO part of it. pro-free-market, limited-government, and conservative sound just fine to them, thank you very much.

Just labeling a catchall Latino vote is misleading in this case because Florida has a large number of Cuban-Americans who have very different, and much more Republican, overall voting patterns then say Mexican Americans. On top of this, if I recall correctly, Bush (Jeb not George) tended to do well with Cuban Americans in Florida as well when he was running for governor.

Local Exit Polls - Election Center 2008 - Elections & Politics from CNN.com

Obama won the latino vote in FL 57-42%.

Senate, House, Governor Races - Election Center 2010 - Elections & Politics from CNN.com

Rubio won the latino vote 55-21-23% (Rubio, Meeks, the snake) and THAT spells trouble.
