LOS ANGELES, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Hispanic Business Round Table is honored to endorse the following candidates in upcoming general elections. These individuals have been chosen because their platform aligns with the principles set forth by HBRT, which are: limited government, fewer regulations, lower taxes, and the belief that government is not the solution to many of our nation's economic problems; rather, it falls upon the private sector and markets to create the jobs and generate the investment necessary to build long lasting economic growth.  

HBRT is pleased to endorse Carly Fiorina for U.S. Senate, and Abel Maldonado for Lt. Governor of the great state of California. "Both of these candidates have a proven track record of leadership and are the right individuals to turn our Golden State of California around," said Hector Barreto, President of HBRT.

HBRT is also honored to announce the endorsement of Susana Martinez for Governor of New Mexico. Susana was first elected District Attorney in 1996, garnering nearly 60% of the vote. She has been re-elected three times, running unopposed for the office in 2008. Susana's hard work has earned her the respect and support of New Mexicans across the political spectrum. "Susana is the right leader for New Mexico, and will cut wasteful spending, lower taxes, and end the 'pay for play' practices of the current administration," said Allen Gutierrez, board member of HBRT.

Finally, HBRT is proud to endorse Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate of the state of Florida. "Marco has a proven record, earned during his tenure in the State Assembly, and I embrace him as Florida's next senator in Washington, D.C. There is no better person for this job," said Jennifer Lucio, a successful businesswoman from Miami.

"I look forward to working together in the near future with each of these and other candidates, as we focus on creating jobs for the unemployed, lowering  taxes, and limiting government spending of funds we don't have," said Hector Barreto, President of HBRT.
