LA mayor hits Republican efforts to woo Latinos

FILE - In this Nov. 30, 2011 file photo, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa speaks at the Los Angeles City Hall. Villaraigosa says Republican efforts to use Latino speakers at the GOP national convention to win over Latino voters won't work. Antonio Villaraigosa told reporters Tuesday that the GOP "can't just trot out a brown face or a Spanish surname" and expect Latinos to vote Republican. He called that window dressing.
