YONKERS - The race for Westchester County executive will heavily rely on which candidate can most effectively appeal to the increasingly important Hispanic vote.
According to the latest census figures, the county's Hispanic population grew by 44 percent in a decade. Democratic hopeful Noam Bramson picked up an endorsement Monday from Latinos United for a Purpose, while incumbent Rob Astorino last week earned the support of Hispanics Across America.
"I'm very proud of what we've done with the Hispanic community," says Astorino. "I think that's evident in the support we have."
Election Day is Nov. 5.
