When Romney told supporters that “it would be helpful to be Latino” at a fundraiser in May, was he also revealing a campaign strategy?

It seems Romney may be trying to connect to his family’s Mexican past.

The former Massachusetts governor and current presidential nominee attended a “Meet the Candidates” forum hosted by Univision on September 19th. When he stepped out on stage, many noticed that he looked rather tan.

Stay tuned.
