Udall Launches 'Twitter Conversation' With Latinos

New Mexico – ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRWG) U.S. Sen. Tom Udall says he will participate in a "twitter conversation" on Latino issues.

The New Mexico Democrat's office announced this week that twitter users in New Mexico and around the country can pose questions about Latino issues to him from now until Oct. 5.

Udall said he will answer questions and discuss how Latinos would benefit from policies to create jobs and help small businesses.

The "twitter conversation" is part of an effort with the Center for American Progress and LATISM, or Latinos in Social Media. Contributors from both groups also will answer a selection of questions with the hashtag (hash)HHMChat.
