'Soccer mamis' could sway Florida race, affect general election

Editor's note: Rose Arce is a senior producer working for CNN's "Starting Point" during the Florida Republican presidential primary and a contributor to Mamiverse, a website for Latinas and their families.

Jacksonville, Florida (CNN) - When it comes to courting the Latino demographic, there's a demo within that demo that might be worth listening to.

Let's call it the Soccer mamis - the Latina mothers who represent 55% of the overall U.S. population growth, according to 2010 Census figures. Their babies account for nearly a quarter of the children being born in the U.S.

    Just want to note that CNN has done a commendable job w/ the debates they have hosted so far. We are impressed w/ the facilitator's "fair and balanced" questioning and management. Keep up the good work.

    Sany I totally agree: CNN has done an outstanding job and I am looking forward to more of the same tonight! The "Elite media" better not be protecting anyone tonight! LOL

    This is already becoming a debate between Romney and Gingrich. If this continues, you will once again lose the opportunity to have a good debate. Give equal time. Not so much to ask.
