Hispanic conservatives keep close eye on Republican debate

(CNN) - As Republicans gear up for Monday's presidential debate in New Hampshire, some conservative Hispanics say they'll be watching closely - and they're hoping to see more than the current field of candidates has offered so far.

"There are no good strong candidates that I see, unless (former Florida Gov.) Jeb Bush enters the race," said DeeDee Garcia Blase, who founded the Somos Republicans conservative Hispanic organization. Now, she heads the Tequila Party, a national organization aimed at galvanizing Hispanic voters on both sides of the political spectrum.

    A REPUBLICAN CONSERVATIVE now heads the tequila part, aimed at both sides of the political spectrum?
    I suppose that's like how the tea party was an 'independent' group till the 2010 election when they fielded candidates in ONLY republican primaries?
    How stupid do you guys think people are?
