Somos Republicans, which calls itself the largest Hispanic Republican group in the country, with some 6,000 members, announced on Monday that it is endorsing Newt Gingrich as the best Republican candidate for 2012. 

"We believe that Newt Gingrich knows the importance of the Latino community," the group said in a statement. "50 million Latinos make up 16% of the current population of our country. Half of our nation's population growth over the next 20 years will be generated by the growth of the Latino population. Latinos are a critical component in the future of our nation. While the other candidates have distanced themselves from this fact, Newt Gingrich has been working hard for many years to include Hispanics in the general conversation to improve America."
