Los Angeles, California (CNN) – Mitt Romney reached out to Hispanic voters Monday in a speech tailored to the growing Latino community, offering a new veneer on long-standing campaign policies.

Romney will also take part in a question and answer session with the Spanish-language television network Univision later this week, signaling his campaign hasn't yet ceded the Hispanic vote to President Barack Obama (who sits down with Univision the next day).
