LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Republican Party is looking to reach out to Hispanic business owners and leaders in Michigan.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel met with Hispanic business owners at the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce on Friday. McDaniels says they are having a broad discussion on tax policy, health care and how the Republican Party can engage more with Hispanic communities.

Michigan GOP Chairman Ron Weiser also attended the event along with various Hispanic community members from Michigan.

McDaniels noted that the day was to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and Mexican-American heritage in the U.S. She says conversations also must take place with Hispanics in states such as Nevada and Arizona, which have large numbers of Mexican-Americans.
