LAS VEGAS (AP) — Joe Biden says he’s making outreach to Latinos a priority in his Democratic presidential campaign after a news report that his most senior Latina staffer had resigned out of frustration.

Biden told reporters Monday that he’s spent a lot of time in Florida, California and even Iowa talking to Latinos and has no shortage of concern for or interest in Latinos.

Politico had reported that his national coalitions director had quit after raising concerns that the campaign focused too much on white and black voters at the expense of Latinos.

Biden says he can understand the staffer’s frustration “in terms of the number of days” he spends in certain states. But he says he’s met with Latinos and has earned the backing of Hispanic leaders.
