It's no secret Donald Trump is struggling to woo Hispanics voters. He's currently polling worse with Latinos than Mitt Romney in 2012 (In that election, Romney captured just 27 percent of the Hispanic vote).
But on Wednesday night, the Trump campaign might have a chance to shift its messaging ever-so-slightly when three Hispanic Republicans take center stage during primetime. Two of them are familiar faces from the primary season; former GOP presidential candidates - Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco (who will deliver a video message.)
The other man, Ralph Alvarado, is a little known state-senator from Kentucky.
Alvarado, 46, is also a doctor and a delegate for his home state. And in 2014, he became the the first Hispanic elected to state office in Kentucky.
In an interview at the Quicken Loans Arena between floor speeches, Alvarado took some time to chat about Trump, Hispanics, and the Republican party.
