Abstract

In 2004 there was considerable optimism going into the campaign that Arizona might become one of the swing states that both political parties would target. To that end, the possibility was very real that the candidates might target Latino voters during the campaign. Coupled with a controversial statewide proposition known as the Arizona Taxpayer Citizen Protection Act, or Proposition 200, which would have required proof of citizenship to vote, the potential for Latino political mobilization seemed imminent.
