Rudy Lopez, national field director of politics for the Washington, D.C.-based minority advocacy group Campaign for Community Change, said the campaign against Pearce was a “trial run and a model for a national campaign that’s going to take place in 2012 — a campaign to reward champions of immigration reform and hold accountable those who are hostile to our communities.”

“The message of this election is clear,” Lopez said. “Latinos and immigrants will not be scapegoated, and we will not tolerate those politicians who attempt to gain or take power by demonizing us.” (emphasis added)
