Election Day 1986 was one of milestones and hailstones for U.S. Hispanics.
Latino and Latina candidates on Nov. 4 broke new ground in several states, including Florida, where Republican Bob Martinez was elected governor.
But in California, voters convincingly rejected State Supreme Court Justice Cruz Reynoso in his reconfirmation bid and even more convincingly supported an “Official English” proposition on the ballot which Hispanic leaders had fought vigorously as a nativist, anti-Hispanic, anti-Asian measure.
Among the milestones:
• Martinez, 51 -year-old formerTampa mayor, defeated state representative Steve Pajcic, 54% - 46%. Of Spanish descent, Martinez became Florida’s second Republican governor since Reconstruction and the nation’s first Latino Republican governor.
With New Mexico Gov. Toney Anaya, a Democrat, retiring from office this year (in that state, elected state officials are not allowed to succeed themselves), Martinez will be the nation’s only Hispanic governor.
• In Texas, Raul Gonzalez of Brownsville, who was appointed to that state’s Supreme Court in 1984 by Governor Mark White, retained his Place No. 4 seat, turning back Republican John Bates, 52%-48%. Gonzalez thus became the first Latino to be elected statewide in Texas in modern times.
Gonzalez, 46, called his win “a new day for Texas, where individuals are judged on merit and their records and not on how they spell their names.”
An estimated 360,000 Hispanic voters turned out - 13% of the state total - and they were key in giving Gonzalez his 187,000-vote margin of victory, voting 9-1 in his favor.
• Also in Texas, Judith Zaffirini became the first Chicana elected to the state Senate in her initial try for political office.
Immigration Bill Signed
President Ronald Reagan signed on Nov. 6 the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 which was passed by Congress Oct. 16. No Hispanics were present at the signing. *
She beat Republican Bennie Bach, 51% -49%, in District51, which includes all or part of 17 counties strung between San Antonio and her native Laredo. The retiring non-Hispanic Democratic incumbent had endorsed her Republican opponent Zaffirini, a businesswoman with a doctorate in communications, has taught at the University of Texas, Austin, and served as vice chair of the Texas Democratic Party.
• In New Mexico, a Latina will follow a Latina as Secretary of State. Democrat Rebecca Vigil defeated Republican Jannie McDaniel by less than 5,000 votes to succeed Clara Jones.
In addition to Reynoso, Hispanic losers in statewide races included Roy Barrera in Texas, Linda Chavez in Maryland, Casey Luna in New Mexico and Herman Badillo in New York.
In Texas, Hispanics remained loyal Democrats, supporting incumbent Attorney General Jim Mattox by a 2-1 ratio over the 34-year-old ex-Democrat Barrera, a San Antonio District Judge.
In Maryland, former White House aide Linda

California City Repeals Language Resolution
The Monterey Park, Calif., City Council voted, 3-2, to rescind a 4-month-old resolution that urged the adoption of English as the nation’s official language.
The Coalition for Harmony in Monterey Park presented the Council with a petition signed by more than 4,500 people calling for the resolution to be repealed. The city of58,000 people- situated just outside Los Angeles - is 37% Latino and 40% Asian American.
A councilman who supported the resolution in June, Cam Briglio, reversed his vote.
The repeal of the resolution came eight days before California voters overwhelmingly approved a referendum on the ballot -Proposition 63 - to make English the state’s official language.


SIN Poll Shows Young Latinos Favor GOP
Although more Hispanics continue to identify themselves as Democrats, young Latinos and those who have been in the United States less than 10 years lean more often than not to the Republican Party, found a nationwide poll by the Spanish International Network released Oct. 28.
When Latinos who were 18-29 years of age and those who had been in this country for less than a decade were asked for their political preference, the results were less traditionally oriented:
18-29 Newer U.S.
Years Old Residents Democrat 32% 25%
Republican 36% 32%
Among those Hispanics who said they were registered to vote, however, 52% re-
ported having Democratic leanings, compared with 34% for the Republican Party.
Bob Brischetto, research director of the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project, said that surveys conducted by his organization among Mexican Americans in Texas showed similar but less dramatic findings with reference to younger survey participants. He cautioned, however, that such findings may not signify a trend but rather a phase in the political maturation of Latinos. Before the determination that Latinos are undergoing a gradual realignment can be made, Brischetto said studies tracking Latino voters over a period of years must be conducted.
The report, “Hispanic America: Political Attitudes of America’s Fastest-Growing
Minority Group,” found striking differences in voter registration among Puerto Ricans, Mexicans and Cubans born outside the United States mainland. Those who said they were registered to vote were:
Puerto Ricans 72%
Cubans 40%
Mexicans 27%
When the same groups were asked if they recalled voting in the 1984 presidential election, 56% of the Puerto Ricans said they did, compared with 40% for those born in Cuba and 19% for Mexicans.

Latinos Gain in Election
continued from page 1
Chavez lost convincingly to Democrat Barbara Mikulski in a U.S. Senate race to replace retiring Sen. Charles Mathias, a Republican. Chavez, a New Mexico native who also served President Reagan as staff director of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, lost, 657,449 (61%) to 424,293 (39%). She was one of several congressional candidates this year who was criticized for a negative campaign.
One television exit poll found that state Hispanics- not a significant voting bloc- also favored Mikulski.
In New Mexico, Casey Luna, a popular Democrat was paired in his race for lieutenant governor with less popular gubernatorial candidate Ray Powell. As a team, they lost to Garrey Carruthezs/Jack Stall, 201,857 (53%) to 178,22'. (47%).
In New York, Democrat Herman Badillo, the former U.S. Congressman attempting a political comeback, lost to Republican Edward Regan, winning 42% of the vote.
All incumbent Hispanic congressmen won, as expected. No new members joined their ranks.
In Illinois, Democrat Miguel del Valle became the first Hispanic in that state's Senate, winning in Districts (Cook County) against Republican Wayne Haney by a convincing 22,742 (80%) to 5,647 (20%).
World War II Hero Dies
Andrew Lopez, a Medal of Freedom recipient and a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer who worked for United Press International for more than 40 years, died of cancer Oct. 30 â–  at his Florida home.
Lopez, 76 and a native of Spain, received the Medal of Freedom - the nation’s highest civilian award - from President Dwight Eisenhower for saving the lives of several soldiers who had been caught in a trap during World War II.
He won his Pulitzer for a picture he took on Jan. 17, 1959, during the Cuban revolution. The picture depicted a man on his knees clutching a crucifix and being blessed by a priest while gunmen waited to execute him.

Hispanics. Latino and Latina candidates on Nov. 4 broke new ground in several states, including Florida, where Republican Bob Martinez was elected governor. But in California, voters convincingly rejected State Supreme Court Justice Cruz Reynoso in his reconfirmation bid and even more convincingly supported an " Official English" proposition on the ballot which Hispanic leaders had fought vigorously as a nativist, anti Hispanic , anti-Asian measure. Among the milestones: • Martinez, 51-year-old former Tampa mayor, defeated state representative Steve Pajcic, 54% 46%. Of Spanish descent, Martinez became Florida ' s second Republican governor since Reconstruction and the nation's first Latino Republican governor. With New Mexico Gov . Toney Anaya, a Democrat, retiring from office this year (in that state, elected state officials are not allowed to succeed themselves), Martinez will be the nation's only Hispanic governor. • In Texas, Raul Gonzalez of Brownsville, who was appointed to that state's Supreme Court in 1984 by Governor Mark White, re tained his Place No. 4 seat, turning back Republican John Bates, 52%-48%. Gonzalez thus became the first Latino to be elected statewide in Texas in modern times. Gonzalez, 46, called his win "a new day for Texas, where individuals are judged on merit and their records and not on how they spell their names." An estimated 360,000 Hispanic voters turned out-13% of the state totaland they were key in giving Gonzalez his 187,000-vote margin of victory, voting 9-1 in his favor. • Also in Texas, Judith Zaffirini became the first Chicana elected to the state Senate in her initial try for political office. Immigration Bill Signed President Ronald Reagan signed on Nov. 6 the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 which was passed byCongress0ct.16. No Hispanics were present at the signing. . She beat Republican Bennie Bach, 51% -49%, in District 51, which includes all or part of 17 counties strung between San Antonio and her native Laredo. The retiring non Hispanic Democratic incumbent had endorsed her Republican opponent. Zaffirini, a businesswoman with a doctorate in communications, has taught at the University of Texas, Austin, and served as vice chair of the Texas Democratic Party. • In New Mexico, a Latina will follow a Latina as Secretary of State. Democrat Rebecca Vigil defeated Republican Jannie McDaniel by less than 5,000 votes to succeed Clara • Jones. In addition to Reynoso, Hispanic losers in statewide races included Roy Barrera in Texas, Linda Chavez in Maryland, Casey Luna in New Mexico and Herman Badillo in New York . In Texas, Hispanics remained loyal Democrats, supporting incumbent Attorney General Jim Mattox by a 2-1 ratio over the 34-year-old ex Democrat Barrera, a San Antonio District Judge. In Maryland, former White House aide Linda continued on page 2 California City Repeals Language Resolution The Monterey Park, Calif., City Council voted , 3-2, to rescind a 4-month-old resolution that urged the adoption of English as the nation's official language. The Coalition for Harmony in Monterey Park presented the Council with a petition signed by more than 4,500 people calling for the resolution to be repealed. The city of 58,000 peoplesituated just outside Los Angeles is 37% Latino and 40% Asian American . A councilman who supported the resolution in June, Cam Briglio, reversed his vote. The repeal of the resolution came eight days before California voters overwhelmingly approved a referendum on the ballot -Proposition 63-to make English the state' s official language.

SIN Poll Shows Young Latinos Favor GOP Although more Hispanics continue to identify themselves as Democrats, young Latinos and those who have been in the United States less than 1 0 years lean more often than not to the Republican Party, found a nationwide poll by the Spanish International Network released Oct. 28. When Latinos who were years of age and those who had been in this country for less than a decade were asked ;for their political preference, the results were less traditionally oriented: 18-29 Newer U . S . Years Old Residents Democrat 32% 25% Republican 36% 32% Among those Hispanics who said they were registered to vote , however, 52% reported having Democratic leanings, com pared with 34% for the Republican Party . Bob Brischetto, research director of the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project, said that surveys conducted by his organization among Mexican Americans in Texas showed similar but less dramatic find ings with reference to younger survey participants. He cautioned, however, that such findings may not s ignify a trend but rather a phase in the political maturation of Latinos. Before the determination that Latinos are undergoing a gradual realignment can be made, Brischetto said studies tracking Latino voters over a period of years must be con ducted.
