Ana Archuleta

The Salt Lake City Tribune has published a profile of Ana Archuleta, a former Democrat who now is a member of the GOP:

It has been two months since the lifelong Democrat officially switched her political loyalty. Archuleta boasts of President Bush's support for Latinos and other minorities, of the Republicans' focus on family values and of the GOP's overall aggressive courtship of the Latino vote.

"The Republicans have done a good job," says Archuleta, who admits she would have laughed at anyone predicting her abandonment of the Democrats even a few years ago.

But Archuleta says she is not the only Latino who has changed party affiliation, or is thinking about it. "We've been taken for granted" by the Democrats, she says.
