Hispanic leaders are warning of harm to Republicans' White House hopes unless the party's presidential contenders do more to condemn Donald Trump, a businessman-turned-candidate who is refusing to apologize for calling Mexican immigrants rapists and drug dealers.Trump's comments, delivered in his announcement speech last month, have haunted the party for much of the last two weeks and dominated Spanish-language media. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who declined to address Trump's comments directly for over two weeks, took a more pointed tone in a statement Thursday evening.Not since the 2004 re-election campaign of President George W. Bush has a Republican presidential candidate earned as much as 40 percent of the Hispanic vote.Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton cast Trump's remarks as "emblematic" of a larger perception within the Republican Party.
